In a Magazine article entitled "Why Vote?", which talks about the "social
economics" of voting, they point out that the introduction of postal voting
in Switzerland caused a drop in voter participation, because, particularly
in small towns and villages, nobody would no that you hadn't voted with a
postal vote.

And interesting twist!
