    ^ Agreed. I don't generally vote in Presidential elections because I've cared little for either candidate for a long time now.. and Texas generally votes republican no matter what.

    I thought you meant "Did you vote.. in the last Presidential election."

    I didn't even know there was a thing this year. Then again, my choices basically boil down to Red v. Red on everything, so my time is better spent watching playthroughs of Zelda II and posting on TypoC.

    I am pretty sure there were no elections here this year. I would not swear to that, but there were no yard signs. I did not see a single one and yard signs are a big thing for local elections around here. I also couldn't find anything on the websites, nor have I seen anything in the local news. And yesterday, I saw a city council member (my favorite one) touching up the paint at my eye doctor's office and it seems like maybe he wouldn't be doing that the day before elections. At least, he wouldn't have been doing so wearing headphones.

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I'm about to though the Dems aren't even fielding candidates for the local positions which is sorta surprising given that this is NYS and 30-40% around here are Dems/ lean left.

    There's still statewide resolutions on casinos, selling state forests to mines, and raising the forced retirement age of judges.

    I voted to legalize marijuana, No to a crap-load of bond issues, my city council vote was more a vote against the incumbent than a vote for the person I selected. For the water district I just did my usual of voting for whoever lives closest to me, I had to choose 2 and I don't even remember their names even though it was only an hour ago.

    Only on local propositions. I was so very close to writing Albus Dumbledore in for President this last election. I really don't see the point of voting with the way the electoral college works. If you tend to agree with the rest of the people in your region of residence it will go your way anyway. If you disagree, it won't matter because they call the state within seconds of the polls closing. That's what living on the West Coast has taught me anyways. If I lived in a swing state I would probably care more.

    My precinct didn't have any elections or initiatives this year (either that or they changed polling locations after 17+ years).

    Of course countries without compulsory voting don't want to know what the people want, but rather want to know what money wants.

    Check with your local League of Women Voters. They usually publish a Voters Guide, even in the off-year elections, with short write-ups by each candidate, and well as pro/con articles on ballot issues. If I didn't vote, I'd have to turn in my LWV card!

    I think local politics are more important then people think, and I wish I knew more about them. But I did vote today.

    I see I forgot to make this poll public. Oh well.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....
