I have encountered several people lately saying they are sick of the US elections, they don't even vote, they're going to move to Australia instead, and then I tell them that voting is mandatory in Australia, and they give me this look of wonder.

(Then I explain instant runoff voting to them and they get this hunted look in their eyes and leave right about the time I start talking about independent redistricting commissions.)

Anyway, "democracy sausage" is really a thing in Australia? Do you. Do you. Do have the proverb about law-making and sausage-making in Australia?
