Voting is indeed a form of force, it is a substitute for force.
For example, if you no longer had the vote, or your vote simply doesn't count for anything, then the only recourse you might have to make your voice heard is some form of violence (against property/people or ideology).
Why do you think they keep trying to pull the wool over everyone's eyes and make them think that their votes actually mean something? The day the electorate wakes up and realises this obvious reality is the day we see the thin veneer of civilization ripped apart and burnt in the streets.
The people in power who are creating this situation treat anyone 'not them' as the enemy and that ,my friends, means me and thee.
