    Hoping that they will remain. It is confusing though, the legislature created the civil unions. Then a group with an initiative that sounded like it supported civil marriage got that initiative. Which really, was just to get the issue on the ballot and let the voters have veto power over the legislature. The way it's done here, a "yes" vote means "yes I support civil unions" rather than "Yes I veto civil unions". It could have been made simpler. So I voted yes, to keep civil unions.

    Assuming I have time in between classes, I'm going to add to bbergs 18+ point victory.

    You guys have elections? For what?

    Next year, my state is going to be a total crapfest of election material.

    If I was a month older I'd be able to vote. Pity too, because our state is one of the only 2 with an actual gubernatorial election this year.

    Local issues are, or at least ought to be, more important to daily life than national issues....

    I've voted in every election since I was old enough to. Still amused by folks who don't vote who show up at political discussion forums and have comments to boot.

    Depends on the area. In NYC, my choice for most local elections are between the democrat who will win by 65 points and the 3rd party candidate who might well be a homeless person.

    Oh? Are all these issues reliant on electoral participation? I avoid it on account of its uselessness, not my lack of thoughts/sentiments on political issues.

    Which issues do you refer to by "all of these issues" and tell me, aside from internet forums what voice do you by definition have, that matter in any substantive way, otherwise?

    It's kind of hard to find a political candidate I agree with.
