You said you're not voting, so I can only assume you also mean at the State and local level. And since ballots usually include things like votes on
single issue referendums & amendments to State constitutions, there are elements of pure democracy here, too.
But since you based your entire OP on the Presidential candidates, it gives the impression that the Presidential candidates alone are the determining
factor on whether you'll vote at any level. Hence my reply.
And why not just write in Petersen or McAfee as your vote? That's literally the point in having the option to write in candidates. Instead, you're
saying you won't vote at all
simply because the most popular candidates aren't to your liking? That makes it sound like you're waiting for a
savior or a perfect candidate.
