This year in Australia the informal vote was 1%, probably the highest ever, and that was because of an orchestrated campaign to vote informal, and because the two main parties were both shit.

OK, but I still don't see any evidence that compulsory voting improves outcomes. I looked at the list of countries on Wikipedia that enforce compulsory voting, and by any measure I can think of (freedom index, human development, economic indexes, etc.) they don't seem to be better off than countries that don't enforce compulsory voting.
