    Re: Are You Voting Next Tuesday?

    I vote in almost all elections. One minor election I forgot about many years ago, but it was something really minor and insignificant. The first election right after I move here (a new state) I purposely did not vote. I was new and really didn't know the local issues or people and felt that any vote of mine would not have been informed. It was only local city and county stuff, nothing state or national.

    Voting in Nov due to my support of SPLOST and ESPLOST which are sales taxes in support of education and infrastructure.

    I'm struggling with this one a bit. I almost always vote, but this year, I'm still living in Ohio for the election, but will be moving to Michigan less than a month afterwards. I feel like it's slightly unethical to vote for things that I won't have to deal with personally. I'm going to have to think on it some.

    I think you'd be ok. Your situation is the opposite from what I mentioned of mine above. You are leaving before the election.

    This is just my opinion, but as long as you feel informed of the people and/or issues, then you should have no qualms regarding voting. Plus, if there are multiple people and/or issues, nothing says you have to vote for every single one. You could vote on the ones important to you as a matter of principle and leave the others blank. I've done that before. I almost never vote for or against judges simply because I don't know who these people are.

    Fantastic and I hope you folks win that one big Big BIG.

    Here we have a tea party attempt to take over the local school board so I will be voting also to try to stop such insanity. Outside of that, not much else going on here.

    There are three issues on the local ballot this time around in NoCo. A <1% tax increase that will support local school districts (voting yes), replaceing a .475% tax with a .3% tax (it's different somehow and increases money somehow through a local tax procedure that I don't understand) to increase public saftey funds for police, jails and community crime prevention programs (voting yes). The "big" issuse is a referendum to ban all Medical Marijuana Dispensaires (MMD) in the city limits (voting NO).

    There are some school board memebers up for election, but I don't know enough about the school district issue to really vote on it, and as far as I know there are no far-right creationists trying to take over thwe board, so I didn't feel compelled to vote in that.

    .. unfortunately, the Williamson County Sherriffs Dept already welcomed me on my 3rd day here... by busting me for Public Intoxication ( walked home drunk from the bar)... to say the least, I was not enamored with my welcoming committee.

    Re: Are You Voting Next Tuesday?

    Meh, normally I only vote in presidential elections. And it's doubtful that I'll even do that, this time around. The chance that I'm going to cast the deciding vote is miniscule, so it's a waste of my time.

    I can't. This is important.
