Voting

It has come to my attention that many registered  voters do not vote in minor elections.  I propose that any election that has less than 30% of the registered voters vote becomes invalid due to lack of support for the candidates or preposed government action.  Many people are demonstrating about the right to vote but many who have that right do not preform the responsibility that citizenship requires.  I also want to eliminate preference for political parties and require that all candidates submit the required signatures to be on the ballot.  I also would require the the government workers that validate those signatures be trained and competent in checking those signatures to secure that they are citizens legal to vote.
