Awarding $1 million randomly to someone who votes

A really dumb idea.

A proposal to award $1 million in every general election to one lucky resident, chosen by lottery, simply for voting — no matter for whom — has qualified for the November ballot. . . .

It would make more sense to simply divide $1 million by the number of voters and give each person their share. GIven that there are apparently about 2 million voters, give everyone 50 cents. The only people that you are going to attract with this million dollars are fairly unusual risk takers. Why try to primarily attract those types of people?
