The Contemporary Usage of the Vote

For a number of years, voting has undergone a clear decline and has
seen an important evolution in its usage and status. Yet, it remains
by far the most common act of political participation. Its universal
character, the legitimacy it grants, its gratifying nature and its ritual
function all contribute to its success. However, voting is increasingly
confronted with the emergence of a “counter democracy” based on protest. The latter has contributed to a more banal and certainly more
unstable and sporadic use of the ballot, voting becoming one means
among many, to be chosen from a growing repertoire of political
action.
