One may certainly dispute that voting is to willingly engage in system of governance, this is to say it states tacit consent to the state. But in reality, when you cast a vote, you literally take part in a social establishment with definite rules; by participating, you agree to adhere to the rules, just the same way as playing a game has its own rules to abide by. And yet one of those rules is that you accept the outcomes of an election. Certainly, this could be factual to some people. How about voting for a party whose aim is purely to spark a revolution? That would mean explicitly advocating for the elimination of the state (Green, 2003). To disregard the voter’s objective as informed by their vote, yet voting implies approval to the mainstream form of government, which makes their vote pointless as a form of approval. If voting is assent, then one is not supposed to express a divergent view from the current political structure by voting for a radical entity. In the same breadth, dissent can be expressed by not voting or by ruining the ballot paper.
