    Default Do you vote?

    Elections are upon us in the U.S., do you plan to go vote? If you're from everywhere else in the world, do you take part in voting?

    It's mandatory in Australia unless you're able to sneak your way off the electoral ballot. But yeah, I always vote.

    I didn't vote but I might start due to the current situation in Poland... Our politicians are truly pitiful.

    I chose other because inalmost always vote. The only times I don't vote are in the odd election where it's only local and there's only one or two candidates running for office and I don't feel strongly about either of them.

    Signature by rubah. I think.

    I always vote. Even though I am cynical about the neoliberal system we find ourselves in globally, that doesn't mean there aren't degrees within that. Getting the 'right' team in might not seem like it makes much difference, but between Bush and Cameron, I've seen pretty damn well what happens when the explicitly bad guys win an election, and as I am not an accelerationist, that's to be avoided.

    I think I had voted once or twice, and that's about it. Now and these days I don't even bother since it seems to boil down to the lesser of two evils in the US.

    Not true. I have never voted and yet I make a living using my voice.

    As often as I possibly can. My first ever election was the 2000 Presidential Race, and I'm in Florida.

    After that, you cannot convince me that my vote doesn't count.

    My voice isn't heard when I do vote...


    I don't vote if I don't like anyone running. I'm not down with the "lesser of two evils" nonsense. And anyone who says I don't have a right to complain if i don't vote can shove it. I'll complain all I want since I didn't participate in getting these morons into office.

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    Absolutely. I have punched ballots at every opportunity since my 18'th birthday.

    Not speaking of anyone here, but it's scary how many people cast an ignorant vote. One of the most notable was nearly 20 years ago. The proposition would have set aside an additional $50 million for "road work". The problem, it was explicitly written that there would be no accounting for who/what/when/where/why/how the money was used. So, Bob and Steve could deposit that in their offshore accounts and if the question ever arose a simple "fixed some pot holes" would have been TMI. Nearly 50% of the Los Angeles voters thought that was a great idea.
