ANSWERS: 26
  • yes i have, and i've had a tear in my eye each time, so stinkin grateful for the opportunity to have a say in my government. it's a privelege and blessing that many millions have never had and i'm extremely blessed. that's why i vote every time i can!
  • Yes, I sure have, for better or worse.
  • Yes, I have voted in every Presidental Election, since I was 18 years old. Never missed one. I also vote in off years, for my local elections. I am very lucky to have been born in the Greatest Country in the world. Great Question..
  • Yep... Sure have. Can't bitch about anything if you don't vote!
  • No, we don't have presidents in Canada. But yes, I do vote in federal elections. :)
  • Yes I have! :D
  • Yeah, 7 times so far. Haven't picked the winner each time though. I do better at the track.
  • Yes, I have. I have never voted for who I wanted to be President however. I have only been able to vote for the lesser of two evils. What does that say about our politicians.
  • No. I had to wait until I was 21 then. I voted for JFK although I vote a lot for Republicans too. I vote for the person not the party. I have voted in every election of any type at which I could vote since then. Many, many elections!
  • I wanted too, but one year, my absentee ballot was sent to me AFTER the election was over. Thanks Hanford California...NOT! (2004) Another year, my ballot was disqualified because it didn't have a postal stamp on it (from overseas) since they were trying to get it to Florida before the deadline-they skipped that step and just flew it (and others) in and carried it to the voting station. 40% of our military ballots were disqualified that year (2000). Our president may have been different if they could have been counted..it was that close!
  • Yep! This election will be my third.
  • I voted in my first one, 1976, but missed the 1980 one because I was in the Navy and did not fill out the paperwork on time. Then I voted in the 1984, 1988, 1992, 1996, 2000 and 2004. I won't be able to vote this year because I will be attending a mandatory seminar here in Puerto Rico, too far away from the town where I have to vote. I won't have the time to vote and come back...
  • I never voted, but I will this year.
  • Yes, I have. I have to admit I wasn't very well informed or interested when I first started, and let my family influence how I voted. The first time or two I voted Republican (oh, horrors!). I finally really started paying attention to issues when I was in college and realized I didn't share the same views. My immediate family still all vote Republican, and strangely enough, still don't get why I vote Democrat.
  • Yes. would not miss that
  • Yes, I have. I haven't missed one.
  • No. Voted once, tried again 4 years later and was told that since I didn't vote in the primary that year I would have to re-register. Too close to polls closing to be able to do that so I missed out on that one. Later on in life I realized that both parties are pretty much the same, once they get into power and their promises are not fulfilled, they'll typically blame the other party for things not happening. Also, both parties start out at different ends of the spectrum in the beginning, only to wind up with not much difference between them on election day. My way of complaining, is to never let myself become one of those idiots who believe that they're voting for the lessor of two evils. They're all evil, they're all in it for themselves. They have no idea of what the common folks go through in everyday life and what's worse they don't care. The middle class is disappearing faster than hotdogs at a hotdog eating contest and no candidate gives two shits about it. Only those with money have influence in policy decisions and that leaves most americans out of the picture all together. In 17 years the misery index has increased tremondously, but to the republicans, we're whiner babies, and to the democrats we're bible hugging gun shooting hicks...screw them both!
  • No. I was never very interested in politics and I would not have made good judgements on which candidates to vote for. This will be the third presidential election I will vote in.
  • Hell no, I refuse to vote. I still feel my ONE vote really makes no difference and I dont care much about politics at all.
  • Yes, it is compulsory in Australia.
  • Yes, I have, but since my state only has 7 electorates, I don't feel it really matters.
  • Yes, I have. And I believe that if someone doesn't vote, they don't have the right to complain about the person who wins.
  • Presidential, yes. The others like congressman, assemblyman, sometimes.
  • Yes I have, although I dont know how much good it has done. : ) I wish I had other people to pick from. Sometimes it feels like choosing between the devil and the witch.
  • I sure have. It's my right and just as I've told my kids when they were young; if the right was taken away from you, you'd be the first to bitch. GO VOTE:)
  • No, because we don't have a president in my country. But I have voted in every single election, both national and local.
