Youtube is a great source for accurate information. Depending on which country you are in, might be true. North Korea, China, Russia might be some with this regulation.

It is called COMPULSORY VOTING and somewhere between 10% and 15% of countries have it. Mexico and Australia I believe are two of them.
To my knowledge, none of them enforce it with jail, and indeed most do not enforce it at all, and for those that do it is usually only for certain elections, and there are a good number of exceptions that can be employed if needed (I was sick on voting day being one of them if you can get a doctor's note, proof of hardship of any kind, being beyond a certain distance from a voting location, etc.).
it is an interesting study for some people. All forms of mandatory voting tend to favor liberal parties. some studies have documented increases in liberal party votes from between 7-17% so changes to such laws can change the political landscape.

This is misinformation being spread online, something you must ignore. Please remember to always get all the correct information through official outlets.

In California only Illegals can vote three times and they won't go to jail if they don't vote. The Democrats are tearing down fences around cemeteries claiming they keep their voters locked in.
