I’ve even had my left-wing American friends tell me that it’d be unfair if people were forced to vote (wow so oppressed to have your citizenship be valued in your own country!). Many European countries have tried compulsory voting and it doesn’t work as well as you think. People who don’t care about voting will more often than not just vote for joke parties rather than actual candidates to avoid the fine, or not care to inform themselves and just make an arbitrary vote based on absolutely nothing.
I think the solution, on the other hand, is making the disillusioned voters realize that their vote matters and make politics and the system engaging, not forcing them into it. To educate the general populace on the importance of voting, and instill in them a civic duty to do so. To make voting easy and accessible, rather than a chore you have to do to avoid a penalty.
