Voting can't hurt. At least not in any technical sense. And the answer here isn't "yes" or "no." The more local you go, the more difference it
can make as someone at that level may actually get elected who isn't owned by special interests. I'd say by the time you get into the
Senate/President level, yeah, it doesn't really matter. Most US Rep races don't matter either. Governors and many state reps, either. However, even
if both candidates are owned by the same interests, sometimes individual personalities still matter and could make some difference(Think about if
Christine O'Donnell won that race). You can also always vote for a third party or independent candidate. If enough people did that, the whole system
The worst part about voting is that it legitimizes a rigged system. One more person not voting won't change any attitudes, though. I always vote even
though I think it's largely a sham.
