Attorney here, I've seen more subpoenas issued by fellow attorneys than I've ever seen issued by a judge. Example: If a bankruptcy trustee wants to depose a debtor for one reason or another (or if a creditor wants to do the same), they'll issue a subpoena of their own accord. I've even sent subpoenas myself on occasion. This is usually occurring when the matter is not quite serious enough to bother a judge for his/her signature.

The problem isn't necessarily lack of meaningful choice (although that is tragic in and of itself), the problem is that of apathy. Diddy's entreaties notwithstanding, a lot of people don't believe that every vote counts, and that may be a good reason why people don't show up to the polls on election day. Or they just don't care. Or they are deliberately not voting as a matter of protest (whatever that may be).
