For example, in most elections in the United States. I'm sure the
particulars vary by state, but it is the general case. For example, here's
Iowa: http://sos.iowa.gov/elections/voterreg/voterlistrequests.html; in that
case, I don't think the specific votes are recorded, but you will be marked
as inactive if you don't vote at least once every four years. Other states
track and provide more information.
