McDonald's inspiring Danes to vote

The Danish government has asked the fast-food giant to help give local politicians a new way to reach voters.

    The fast-food chain McDonald's is doing its bit for democracy.

    The Danish government asked for the restaurant giant's help in encouraging citizens to vote in local and regional elections. 

    Some say it cheapens the process, while others just want to eat their meal in peace.
