PROBLEM: how to increase the number of people who vote.

SOLUTION: retain a portion of lottery winnings, on election day
          everyone who votes gets a quick pick for a shot at a
          million bucks.

I've never seriuosly suggested this because it would attract the
very people I would prefer to just stay home. Also why I hope for
bad weather on election day.
