Re: VOTE today! And is the Federation a democracy?

I don't believe elections were ever mentioned in Trek, but I think its safe to assume that the Federation is a democracy, where all individuals (once reaching an adult age in accordance with their species development and customs) would be given a vote.

Only makes sense to me, otherwise you go down the route of a dictatorship, which just isn't Trek.
