You do have an impact on local issues if you are involved, so even if you don't vote for President I'd say it is wise to take part in the local issues.

I, on a daily basis, focus on 'the issues'. I believe that my participation on ATS satisfies my 'civil duty'.
And yet people who don't interact with the election process every three years out of four have a voice equal to mine...
I love the discrepancy inherent in that...and will defend others voice.
I will make mine smaller, yet more consistent, because I truly think there is a difference to be made...

If 90% of the population abstains from voting, then you have allowed 10% of the population to make the decision for you. I vote because I don't want anyone making the decision for me. I don't think you can make a significant impact unless you get 100% to not vote.
Vote 3rd party!

What! Their are voters out there that shouldn't complain. Those who take no responsibility for their life. Those living off government and making babies they can't afford but yet they can vote.

I think it is a sad thing that you choose not to vote.
For president, i understand, but there should be MANY state and local issues that you should have voted on.
It wasn't just a president that we voted for... In fact, the state and local issues are MORE important then selecting a new Commander in Thief.
