    Do you vote? (poll)

    Curiosity kills - do you vote?

    Do you care to explain why or why not?

    My initial thought was: If you care about politics so much that you actually joined a site entitled "Debate Politics", then you would obviously care enough to vote to help implement your particular brand of politics. So I'd be curious to see why someone wouldn't vote. I would guess there would not be many here. (?)

    It's my duty as a citizen. Democracy requires participation.

    Yes and I also volunteer for exiting polling. Although, my reason isn't as noble. As a political scientist, we sorta get guilt tripped into doing it.

    I'm not legally permitted to vote here in the U.S. or at home in Canada due to living here so long, but if I was allowed to vote I'd probably vote in any election I felt I knew sufficiently well. I'm not going to vote for anyone without first seeking an understanding of all candidates. Having never voted, I'm not sure if you can even leave sections blank when multiple things are on a ballot, but if you cannot I'd just write in my own name for all the unfamiliar races.

    Re: Do you vote? (poll)

    I try to vote in national and local elections.That said if I do not like either of the candidates then I will not vote for either one,I refuse to vote for the lesser of two evils.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Yes in all elections. My wife tends to cancel me out though, lol. My daughter on the other hand makes up for it, hehehe.

    There aren't curtains anymore- just 'wings' on the machines that don't hide crap when EVERYONE has to file behind you when they walk. . . .at least where I live.
