Some votes more valuable than others?

The Institute of Public Policy Research recommends that voting should be compulsory in the UK. Is this welcome if it stops the major parties focusing their resources on chasing votes in key marginal constituencies whilst ignoring other areas?

Not all votes are equally valued by the parties and are frequently taken for granted under the current system.

Surely the right not to vote is as important as the right to vote?
