Quit messing around and voting for the Lesser Evil.

All this does is prolong the misery, pain and suffering. ;)


I want to vote very badly, and I registered to vote by mail, but I have yet to recieve my ballot, which Colorado says was mailed two weeks ago. I am rather pissed off.

No point for voting Cthulhu, though. He's third party, and they never get anywhere near enough votes to make it count.

All it takes is one elected office ... perhaps in a backwater Mayoral election in Massachusetts ...

There are exactly zero Magikarp along my coast.

That could be a problem. I'm not sure what happens if you try to vote in person after requesting to vote by mail.

Have you contacted your local registrar? Or your local party office might be able to help. They want you to vote.

Depublicrat or Remoplican.

Don't want to vote for R'Obomney.

Sometimes I want to just write in "The Other Guy", but what if someone names themself that? Same issue if somebody changes their name to "None Of The Above".

Bad political year.


The Mad One already provided good general advice to the disgruntled unhappy with the current system.

Vote! Soon the stars will be right! Ia! Ia!!

I think if you have your voter card/form in hand when you show up at the polls you still get to vote. I can't recall the term for this type of ballot, but you should still be able to vote on Election Day!

In all seriousness: do your due diligence, check the facts behind the rhetoric and VOTE. Don't procrastinate and skip the election on this coming Tuesday and PLEASE don't assume that your vote doesn't make a difference.

EVERY VOTE MATTERS. Understand the issues being voted on your ballot, have some idea about all of the candidates and know which candidates represent you the best regardless of party affiliation.

In other words, when doing your due diligence, pay attention to the candidates' party affiliations only insomuch as you absolutely have to - mostly for research purposes.

If you can, show up on Election Day with your decision in hand. There will be hordes of the candidates' mini-onions attempting to persuade you to tow their party line.

As much fun as it might be to mow the lot of them down with machete or machinegun fire, don't. Stride through the steaming masses of asses with your head held high and vote according to your own knowledge.

Basic game theory. If you keep voting for the lesser of two evils, things still continue to trend towards evil. Vote for Cactoid Jim as president of Earth.

I voted.

I'm in NY, so Green and otherwise Democratic ticket.

My GF is registered in Florida and rightly voting against Romney. So Obama. With my full support.

*%#! the 2-party system. I'd have voted Libertarian if there were no collisions with the Greens. More than any single issue, I want to break the 2-party system so that we actually have a chance of reform in this country.

I guess I'm a dreamer. Anyone else with me?


I voted.
Obama and other Democrats on the Working Families line.

I went early this morning. No lines, no problems. I've rumors of problems in swing states. Anyone run into any?

It's a nice thought, but the process won't let it work. A multiparty system requires something other than a winner-take-all first past the post system.


Don't blame me I voted for Aroden

I voted, and I was very happy to do so (though I felt dumb for not knowing the differencse between some of the non-partisan, city council candidates).

Now to sit back and wait anxiously for the results!

There are lots of people with you. Whether or not any of them will actually DO anything about it, however...

Grand Lodge

Voted
(Friday afternoon)

Voted for whoever has the best chance of beating the Republicans.


Voted. Swing state here, so the lines are fairly long. Voted to shoot down certain idiocies as regards eminent domain in the state constitution.

I'm hoping that the voter turnout, regardless of the results, sets a record high.


I voted for unreasonably large subsidies to the brain slug planet. And also for Supreme Potentate, may he destroy his enemies.


Voted just now.
I like the ballots here. Paper ballots, empty ovals, # 2 pencils.
No chads, no electronic f ups.

That would be nice. I'm not a big fan of either party, it'd be great to have an alternative.

I voted.

This was the first presidential election in my district where we used the paper ballots you mark by filling in a little circle with a pen (like on a standardized test form), and you then feed the ballot into a machine that looks like a photocopier.

Honestly, I miss the old mechanical lever machines. The loud "Ca-CHUNK" of the gears simultaneous with the little "ding" of a bell and the "swoosh" of the curtains opening when you finally cast your vote was a very satisfying sound.

I won't say who I voted for, but I will mention that I lean quite far to the left on the political spectrum, and voted accordingly.

Voted here. Almost straight Libertarian, but one D (who was formerly an I and then switched. Most of the local D party is supporting Bud Shuster, ugh.)

I have not yet Voted but I will be voting for Mittens plus a yes on 32 (stop forced contributions from public sector union employees in California) once I get out of work.
We also have a few tax hike/cost increase proposals that I hope will be crushed (30, 37 and 38).

It would be nice if this would turn out to be a decisive and reasonably clear victory for either side so this BS can finally end tonight and doesn't get dragged out for days.


Hey Aux, may I ask how your voting on prop 37 and why? If you dont wanna answer, I understand. Just want to pick your mind.


Got it done. No lines at all in our precinct here in southern Colorado.

Good lord. I'm afraid you have a pretty hardcore case of Republicanism.

He labeled it a tax hike/cost increase proposal. I assume it's because he considers himself a fiscal conservative and opposes such laws on principle.

Mind you, the expected fiscal impact on the taxpayer is, at most, $1 million annually. That's not really that much - a few cents per taxpayer per year. The question really boils down to whether we believe it is in the public interest to force companies the disclose whether food products are genetically engineered. As far as I can tell, the jury is still out on that one. I personally declined to vote on the proposition, leaving it to those better informed or the California legislature to craft a more complete, well-researched piece of legislation to deal with the issue. There are valid arguments both for and against, and when that's the case I prefer to defer to the legislature rather than risk implementing a fundamentally flawed law (see: three strikes).

Deen did an AMA on reddit last night to raise awareness of the ballot measure. It was a fascinating read, for quite a number of reasons.

I’ll answer WK, may not be the one people will like but...

I am not against the labeling of GMOs per se – for me it's more of an issue of costing more money while failing at it's assigned purpose. Example: We have a similar situation arise with our fuel that was put into motion in the mid 90's to deal with pollution. In California (and only in California) we instituted a variety of seasonal gas blends which makes us highly dependent upon the refineries we have in our state. When we have a local refinery fire or shutdown, prices go through the roof. When there is a national crisis we always pay more. Always. California made itself into an island when it comes to fuel.

When the big gas hikes hit last month, we had an extra dollar price over what the rest of the nation was paying (around 5.50 to 6 dollars + in a few areas). I don't think that California should lead the charge on this. We will pay more for labeling; substitution materials in products just to sell in CA if a company wants to remove a GMO aspect of their product will drive the price of food up, the process of labeling will also drive the price of production up for companies that want to sell their product in CA. It could also drive producers of food out of the state or out of business. I think that this should be a national/FDA thing, not an exception of labeling required only for CA. Also it’s a poorly written law - does not address a greater issue of hormones pumped into food or pesticides used on foods.

Oh wait, Betts made an attempt to answer for me..sorry about that.

This is a cogent argument, and deserves to be evaluated at length. While I can't agree with many of your voting preferences, you damn well deserve recognition for bothering to be educated on the issues.

Speaking as a Democrat who sympathizes with the disappointment many in the Republican party must be feeling for their options, I sincerely hope you channel that same reasonable mindset towards righting your party.
