Opt-Out Voting

I. INTRODUCTION

Imagine for a moment that you are a registered voter casting a ballot in the U.S. presidential election. What generally happens in such an election today is that you acquire a ballot—either by making the journey to a polling place on election day (or in the days leading up to election day) or receiving a ballot, such as an absentee ballot, by mail just prior to the election.

That ballot has the eligible candidates listed on it. You select the candidate you prefer—by filling in an oval, pressing a button on the machine, or some other method of marking the ballot— then cast your vote and proceed with your usual daily routine.
