I refuse to participate in this farce for president (no votes for president) but can I vote on the questions and still have my vote count?

what questions? there are no such things in a national election.

what i mean by that there is nothing like in a state vote like Prop 1 in a national election.

in a state election yes, you can leave the president choice open.

Let me reiterate: I think the only choice we have is no vote.

If you leave President blank the rigged voting machines help out by putting Hillary in for you. She is the default candidate.

What's wrong with Jill Stein, or write ins?

Yes. You can vote on a single candidate or question and it will still count. Though I'd also recommend you vote for any 3rd party candidates on your ballot.

Jill Stein is an anti-gun fanatic! I don't see eye to eye with her on anything more than the environment, and even some of those I feel like she wants to go too far too fast as far as our energy industry goes.

As others have already advised, yes, you can vote on the ballot propositions without voting for prez... but I hope you vote for someone for prez -- even if you write in Mickey Mouse! But please at least consider voting third party -- either Libertarian or Green Party -- not for the candidate, but for the chance to put a third party on a level playing field with the Republicans and Democrats. Make it a strategic vote. Third parties only need to get 5% of the vote to receive the same federal funding and other perks that now give Republicans and Democrats a huge advantage over the other parties. Increased competition and opportunities can only help us -- the people!!!

Whatever you do though, please don't leave it blank and give anyone with nefarious purposes the opportunity to vote for someone for you.

As for as write-ins, it may vary state to state. In my state, only write-ins who qualified are valid. A list is posted. Mickey Mouse didn't do the paper work and fee to run here.

I believe every state allows a person to leave a ballot position blank for no vote.

edit:

You can ask a person working at the polling place about it in order to know the law in your state.
