In pursuance of my call for an American Labor Party, I am going to lay out my vision for inducements to voter registration.
The easiest way is to have a fully refundable $100 tax credit.
Over a decade, by simply being registered to vote, a person will get a free $1000. Nice.
In the United States, 239,247,182 people are eligible to vote. If this tax credit were eligible to everyone, and everyone registered to vote, the total cost of these tax credits would be $239,247,182,000 throughout the 2020s.
Politicians will not care about finding any offsets for these tax credits because this program will do nothing but reward their voters. If I have learned anything about the corrupt institutionalist/careerist politicians we have today, it's that they love, for better or (usually) worse, to reward their voters.
