I'm just curious who votes each year. I know people who have claimed they never voted a day in their lives. (for elections and such).

I vote when my vote will make a difference; my region is traditionally democratic, I am a democrat, my vote is generally going along party lines and would not make a significant impact.

In elections in which the vote is up for grabs, or in local elections where my vote would significantly matter, I do my best to participate.

That's a very good point and a different view than what I have heard amongst my friends!

I always vote, even if I'm crunched on time. If it means taking off a day from work then so be it!

I only vote cause I'm forced to or we cop a fine over here.

I vote, however I really starting to feel that elections are rigged.

I've never voted. I want to be thoroughly informed before I make a decision,a nd I just don't have the time to make an informed decision so I dont do it.

When the day comes that the option to "disband Congress and start anew" becomes is on a ballot, that will be the day I vote.

Out of sheer curiosity, do you think that has helped improve voter knowledge or do you feel like people are making uninformed choices out of fear?

I have voted in every single election since I turned 18. I even voted by absentee ballot when I was at school or abroad. I live in a swing state so every matters. I've also been a member of the city's democratic committee for 3 years now so it would be pretty bad if I didn't vote.

I always try to vote, although I didn't vote in our last federal election over here because I just didn't have the time.

I always vote in every election, nationally, state and local. Government and elected officials have too much power over my business and personal life for me not to at least put in my vote. While I think the national voting system needs reform, I believe in popular vote over electoral, I still feel it my duty to vote. I write for a local magazine in my county. I am always meeting the elected officials and the people that are affected by the decisions they make. Some good, some really not so good. The elected BOE in my county absolutely needs ousting to improve the lives of our kids. With anlittle information and campaigning it can be done. Votes really do matter.

I vote here...

I try to vote when I can remember and have the time to get it to a ballot drop-off (yes it has been that long since I voted). My issue now though is that I have lived in WA for over 4 years and still have my OR driver's license because I can't prove I actually live here! So, I can't vote in WA either...we are working on ways to prove I live here though...so hopefully I can vote again soon.

I vote. I also contact my politicians, especially my local politicians when I want my voice heard. And I can say for a fact that yes, my local politicians listen.

Sometimes. Growing up, house rules were that people who skipped the polls didn't get to bitch about policies.

I always vote. My "knowledge about the society" (Junior High subject in Poland) made sure of that. The party I'm voting for is opposite of what he votes (and even once ran) for but the principle of responsibility is just the same.

Recently we narrowly avoided a complete ban on abortion (yes, even for victims of child rape and women with ectopic pregnancy) in Poland. If more people won't go to vote next weekend against the party that wanted to do that this time it might stick. 50% of people just don't care.

I don't understand why people would live in a country that permits voting don't vote.

I think it's one of the most prized priviledges!

If I don't vote, then I don't feel like I have a right to complain about who got elected into office or how badly they're messing things up. I think it's important to vote, even if it seems like my vote won't make a difference, and we're teaching our children how important it is as well.

I always vote! I am a politically driven person though, so it goes hand in hand. I am a political science major, volunteer for political campaigns, etc.

^ That's what I always say.

I try not to be interested in politics, but I can't help but be interested in how things are going in government, so I vote every time, for as long as I've been able to.

I agree with the sentiment of not being able to complain if you didn't cast a vote to help decide. I did vote in the last presidential election, but I don't really follow politics so it's a tossup whether I'll vote in the next one.

I have voted in all presidential elections that I have been able to (since I turned 18). I missed most of the location elections, sadly, because I either was away to college and not near the town I was a 'resident' of or I just kept moving before it came around! I'm finally settled so hopefully I'll be around for the local one here.

Definitely do presidential votes and going to vote against the lame-ass amendment 26 crap in November.

That is primarily why I don't vote in the elections, I can't make heads or tails of what's really going on and I'd rather not cast my vote for someone if I don't know what the truth is. But, when it comes to politics and the truth, it's sort of an oxymoron.
