Probably dates from the time when democracies were actually trying to encourage people to vote...

Hold up.

The questions about "organizing an election" and voters' assignments to a particular "fixed polling place" concern the UK electoral system, specifically.

Let's not generalize methods of "to encourage" (or to discourage) to exercise the ballot for either the past or the present,

before you've even established qualifications for

  1. universal suffrage in the the UK; and
  2. democratic form of government  in the the UK.


Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
