I probably should. I don't especially like either candidate, though.

No.

Why?

Cuz I dont deal with politics.

Reason?

Cuz no president will ever be able to change the world.

Only person that can do that is God/Jesus.

Why the hell did this get moved? I put in the GD for a reason, people who come into the Election for are obviously going to ****ing vote or have some sort of interest in it, I put it in the GD so more people would see it and respond. :bs:

Not 100% sure yet. I'm registered. So in the end, I'll probably end up voting.

I will definitely be doing some voter suppression though, and intimidation.

Still, a lot of people (including myself) aren't really that into politics and the election. So I never come into the Election forums. I just put it into the GD to get a wider range of people answering, because the people in here obviously have an interest/knowledge of the election.

Should have my absentee ballot faxed to me within 3 weeks or so, which I'll promptly fill out and send in.

Yeah, I'll vote.

My dad would beat me with a paddle like Dazed and Confused if I didn't.

Still not sure who I'm voting for, though.

Yes. But I may skip certain races where no viable candidate is on the ballot. I know some will consider me lazy for not voting for the unqualified. Why that makes me lazy I really can't figure out, but that's how I roll.

No, I live in Wyoming so my vote doesn't count for much at all. But mostly because I feel I am not educated enough about what either candidate plans on doing. I go to school full time so most of my free time goes to school work so I don't have the time nor the energy to get caught up enough to make a responsible decision. Kinda ranting, but I just don't want to get bashed for my decision.

Nobody is a 100% fully informed voter. Some people are very well informed, but they're probably a minority. Most people probably vote based on somewhat limited information - a few key issues that they care about the most, what they perceive to be the quality of character and qualifications of the candidates, and which party they're pre-inclined to choose. If you picked just, say, 3 main issues that you felt were most important to you, examined the candidates' policies and positions on those issues, and voted based on that you'd probably be on just as solid ground in your decision - if not moreso - than many "average voters".

I think it's cool that you'd take it as a serious enough responsibility to feel that "I'm not qualified" is a good reason to stay home, but on the other hand, don't sell yourself short on your qualifications, either. If you've thought about it enough to form that opinion, then your voter awareness is probably already ahead of many.

i was planning on voting just b/c i thought it'd be cool, but then kinda got discouraged as i started to dislike both candidates. but if i feel strongly one way or another in the next month i probably will.

if you don't like either one, vote for a third party candidate. that's better than not voting at all.

Maybe I would try that if I actually liked the guy...

100% yes

Voting is one of the best freedoms in this country, and I do not take it for granted.
