I didn't.

Then again I dont know what state I am supposed to register and vote in. My parents live in ohio and I go to school in NY. And if I am supposed to register in ohio there is no way I am driving 3-4 hours just to vote about parties that I know nothing about

Well instead of driving 2+ hours back from school to vote and miss out on hanging with my buddies, I instead played NFS:Most Wanted, ate a huge pizza, and swordfought with two old arrows.....good times.

Im a horrible American citizen I know, and now it sucks because "Hillary Jr" as we call her is now our state Senator...

Yes, I always vote. I'm of the opinion that it'* my responsibility as a U.*. citizen to do so. It'* one of the few things we should do if we want to retain the "rights" we all like to claim are ours as a free society. While it certainly can be argued that we are really a a republic and not a true democracy, because that'* true, there are many issues that are decided by each of our votes.

For those that choose not to, I'll give it to you that'* it'* your choice, but you are abdicating your choices and responsibilities if you so choose.

It'* a small price to pay to take the time to inform yourself of the candidates and their positions (and I don't mean by watching campaign ads) by reading papers and watching debates, etc...

OK, so my opinion (which is the only right one BTW... ). Take it as you will.

i gotta say that i dont like either the democrats or the republicans, imagine if the country was completley contorlled by democrats and imagine the same for republicans, neither one looks good to me so I vote for whichever party is weaker to try to maintain a balance, i would vote third party but come on, be realistic, its basicly a wasted vote

I am glad not everyone thinks like you do or things would be even worse than they already are. All you can do is vote for the lesser of two evils.

I always vote.

If more people would educate themselves about the other parties and, vote for the one that shares their views, the political landscape would be very different.
