    Re: Do you vote? (poll)

    I only vote in local elections where my vote can actually count. National elections are a joke.

    Yes, in all elections, it is my duty as a citizen.

    You didn't have my option so didn't vote.

    I will vote when I can vote for someone that isn't "the lesser of two evils". Until I come across a politician like that then I don't vote.

    I always find this type of comment to be silly. IMO voting for the sake of voting because it is "my duty as a citizen" has led to the mentality of "gotta vote for the lesser of two evils". Sometimes saying nothing is just as effective or more effective than saying something. One example of this is the Presidents ability to use "pocket veto". Granted I'm not the President and my lack of voting is far more less effective than those that do vote. But at least for me it does what I want it to do. Which is make a statement about <insert all the crappy politicians here> not being worthy enough to be in office.

    Edit: Just to note, if they had an option to vote negatively against someone without voting for someone else then I would be voting every chance I got. Since there isn't one then I have to make do with my only other recourse.

    I have not missed an opportunity to vote in any local state or national election in decades.

    So as to avoid the possibility of derailing this thread I have made a thread about this Here I feel that this is worth discussing.

    I have to.

    Since there is no perfect candidate (or human for that matter), it is always going to come down to voting for the lesser evil, isn't it?
