Correct (until this day), indeed SH. Correct (raised to an usurious 6CHF not too long ago). Wrong, turnout is literally always the highest in SH; it's (also literally I believe) never less than 60% and roughly 20 percentage points above the national average, perhaps 15 points above the national average when turnout is unusually high nationwide.

The fine used to be a common thing but it was abolished in the other Cantons quite some time ago (like, 20 years ago or more).
Thanks for confirming.

So iit would seem that ndeed, the threat of a small and essentially symbolic fine can indeed motivate many people to vote.
