    Did you vote in these Midterm Elections

    I'd assume people spending time on a Political debate board would have 100% participation unless they are underage, barred by law (like a felony) or are not US citizens etc

    I will be voting. But it's only 8:00 AM. So I haven't yet.

    Some do not believe in voting for the lesser of two evils (or multiple evils). So while some people are political, they may not want to participate in a political system they feel is corrupt and the decks stacked in favor of corrupt parties. Also in some states with computer voting you are not allowed to vote "None of the above" and cannot do a write in choice in the abstintee ballots, so the choices are between candidates you don't want to vote for. That could also discourage people from voting.

    I voted, but then I'm allowed the option of "None of these candidates".

    our polls in Ohio open at 630 IIRC my wife voted around 715 since turtle Jr has to be in HS by about 7. I just got back (about a 3 mile drive) and her was no wait but 63 people had already voted in my precinct which is heavily GOP

    I'm that one guy who voted too young on the poll

    But what sucks is that my private school has school today while all the public schools get a holiday.

    Wasn't at the poll exactly 1st thing but was done before 7. I was the 25th ballot cast at my polling location and there were about half a dozen still voting. Looks like it's going to be a better than average turnout but not anything crazy.

    Re: Did you vote in these Midterm Elections

    I technically should have waited to click "yes" but I'm heading out in about an hour and a half to vote. I've never missed an election.
