I never vote a straight ticket. It's stupid to do. I take my time, research the candidates, find out if they are the kind of person that I want representing me in Washington, then I vote that way.

Whether they be Democrat or Republican, or Independent doesn't matter to me, it's what they stand for and if applicable what they have voted on in the past that makes the difference.

Voting a straight ticket is the loser way to vote. Brain dead howler monkeys can vote a straight ticket.

I whole heartedly agree with WhatUKno.

That is one of the problems with America. There are too many stupid Americans that vote a straight ticket because they want "their party" in control. It doesnt seem to matter how "their party" hurts the country.

If I had my way, all of the incumbents would be gone, and there would be no such thing as a Career Politian.

Normally I would agree with you whole heartedly and I have to admit that this year may be a first for me. I too, have never voted a straight ticket, but so far this year, I have yet to find a single republican or independent that has not completely lost their mind. I just can't vote for such divisiveness and bigotry.

Looks like this year I'm going to vote like a "dead howler monkey" and go Democrat all the way.

It's a different thing if you research all the candidates and all the ones that come up that work for you happen to be in the same party. That's not being stupid, that's informed voting. Nothing at all wrong with that.

I am referring to the people that blindly vote a straight ticket because they want one particular party in charge, these are the "brain dead howler monkeys" I am referring to.

If you research your candidates and find that the ones that you agree with are all part of the same party, that's a different story.

In North Dakota, I currently would vote Democrat for the House seat, and Republican for the Senate seat. The Dem is an incumbent who I think has done well enough, and his opponent says weird things like "If I'm elected, I will overturn Obamacare" (whatever that means) and "We should drill for oil in the Theodore Roosevelt National Park."

The Republican for Senate, on the other hand, is our current Governor, who has been a voice of sanity guiding our state, which has not suffered from the economic downturn, largely as a result of reasonable, sensible and conservative fiscal policies. His opponent is a nobody who sends me email spam chronically, despite my requests that he stop.

In other words, both candidates I would vote for have demonstrated that they are the better person for the job. I couldn't care less what letter is behind their name.

I vote none, why you say? It doesn't matter if I vote or not the same person is going to get into office no matter what.

All the political parties are corrupt anyway.Why would I vote for a predetermined president hand picked by the elites?

Well, to sort of give my hand even though I'm the OP, I must agree with whatukno. It's important to really look at the people we send to congress, the senate, or the presidency. For me, that means looking at them through the prism of the US Constitution.

NO ONE AT ALL - NO THANK YOU! My reason is I have had enough of being deceived - I think I have done my homework and choosen a good canidate to vote for and then find out I have been lied to and decevied from the beginning. My other reason is a lot of the candidates I just don't find appealing for the job in the first place. So that's it for me - good luck to the rest of you!

You are right, I don't like the radical right, I don't like the extreme fascist legislate morality warmongering right wingers. However, there have been some republican candidates I have voted for in the past that I felt were good candidates. You all would probably call them RINO, but in fact they would really be moderate republicans who can actually compromise.

sorry still dont believe you cause im pretty sure you didnt vote for mcain. and mcain is clearly a r.i.n.o.

and after almost 2 years mcain was a far better choice by the actions of obama.

I already cast my vote in the Democratic Gubernatorial Primaries here in Florida. Brian P. Moore the 2008 Socialist Party presidential candidate recieved 23% of the vote, 23%! I cast my vote for him.

I don't vote in my Congressional District because the Republican runs virtually unopposed, for Senate I won't be voting for anyone and for Governor I am very anxious to vote for Farid Khavari, he is an Iranian born small business owner who's main goal is to establish the 'Bank of Florida' similar to what they have in North Dakota.


So on the plain out 'up or down' vote I would have to go with Third Party.

You say that as if the only independent candidates are on the right. There are leftist independents.

As for the OP: If I was actually aware of my options prior to the elections I'd have a better grasp on which candidate would be the best, right now I have two options. The only one that comes close is the democrat, even if he is pro-life, so I will be voting for him.

It's not too hard to do research on candidates; Votesmart.org does all the work for you!

Do you really think your vote makes a difference?

Just recently, the "register to vote" banners was put up on the lamp posts and adverts started screening on the TV!!!
"You MUST register to vote" echoed all over SA,and then all of a sudden.....
the different party leaders' faces appears just underneath the "register to vote" banners!!!!

Do you really think your vote counts?
Do you really think that YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

If I throw a stick at you,will you fetch? or do you believe,like I do,that the stick is nothing more than invisible dreams,to far to reach!!!
The government has brought shame and lies upon all the GOOD people of this country,
and the war is about power to the man and not the people!!!
If you vote for any party,you are making them more wealthier and they will,like all the other times before,vanish for 5 years,
before showing up on your town's lamp posts again!

Why do you want to register?
Why do you want to vote?

If America could manipulate the counting system when Obama was elected for President,
or Mugabe could manipulate the people,horrifically,to vote for him,what makes you think that we have a free and fair voting system,
or even that the party you vote for will stand up to there promises?
I beg to differ from there FALSE SPREAD lies,that you can make a difference!!!

BULL S HIT!!!!

We have never made a difference in politics.The old government never did,and neither does the new one!!!
We are being fed lies about the truth!!THE TRUTH,the very meaning in the word itself has been man-f ucked!!!
Raped by the rulers of this country!!!

The more recent fights in the ANC,is living proof that power is only available to a very select few,and we have to put a stop to these power abusers!!
Look at all the things happening around us.I say:"Stop the killings and the violence,
bring an end to the suffering of the people and put your differences aside for once and for all.We have sufferd enough.
So I ask of you one more time,

DO YOU REALLY THINK YOUR VOTE COUNTS?
DO YOU.......?

I'd vote for my Mom. She bakes brownies, does the laundry, AND says I'm handsome. That's always the best policy.

Vote Mom in 2012! Rah! Rah! Rah!

No? Oh well. More brownies for me.
