Perlmonks rewards voting, and it doesn't discriminate between an "intelligent" vote and a "vote to get XP".
This is consistent with governments the world over.
But any democracy who doesn't want to be become the laughing stock of the world doesn't hand out goodies in the voting booths.
(Spelling error corrected for clarity)
I've always wondered why this is. I suspect that a free buffet lunch at a polling location would draw in registered voters like flies. They check your registration, you vote, you go around the buffet once or twice.

Yeah, voters shouldn't have to be enticed. Humanity shouldn't have to be policed, either, but those systems exist. Necessary evils exist, so why encourage only the most egregious ones? Why shouldn't there be tasty baked lasagna, free for the taking if you do your civic duty?

You are what you think.
