Sir: John Burridge is wrong (letter, 5 May). Voting can be made compulsory without infringing the right of individuals to express their dissatisfaction by not voting.

This could be achieved by adding a simple "No Confidence" option to the ballot paper. Individuals could make a definite statement on the choices on offer without being forced to spoil their papers or stay at home.
