    Same here, except they don't have people line up behind you, they make you wait for an empty machine.

    I have voted in every election since I was first eligible - going into my twenty-first year of doing so - and have donated time and/or money to many of those candidates and causes over the years.

    Presidential, Senatorial/Congressional, gubernatorial yes.

    I couldn't give a damn about local elections. Those really have little to no impact and are essentially popularity contests.

    For President? Why when the electoral college decides who wins. Three presidents have won without the popular vote, including Bush against Gore.

    In fact, it is possible for a candidate to not get a single person's vote -- not one -- in 39 states, yet be elected president by winning the popular vote in just 11 of these 12 states:

    California
    New York
    Texas
    Florida
    Pennsylvania
    Illinois
    Ohio
    Michigan
    New Jersey
    North Carolina
    Georgia
    Virginia

    I don't like the candidates, I don't like the system but I do like the people.

    man are you off-base. Local elections vote in city council which votes for school board members that directly affect your children. They fight for what your area might deserve at your legislature...it is the bottom run in the ladder and without it, the concept of democracy crumbles. Please, vote locally as well, no matter which way you vote.

    I vote early and often in every election.

    Yes: in fact - local elections do effect me more directly that national elections do . . . in my local elections a few individual votes can really swing a race - or hike taxes. I've fought a proposal to build a new jail for years - I still feel they should just fix the one they already have. We win every vote but not by much.

    No. It only encourages them.
