If you are old enough and live in the US for God's sake GO VOTE TOMORROW!!!

Your government cannot represent you without your input. Make your voice heard.

No, make it Libertarian :)

Seriously though, vote your mind, not what the masses or what men in suits tell you. But get out there and vote.

Yeah, I would rather vote for the person I agree with, Republican or Democrat, than submit to the corrupting system of voting for a certain party no matter how horrible the candidate may be.

I don't vote, I've never registered to vote, and I never will.

Well, you know what they say: "When you do not vote, you lose your right to complain." I like it when people do not vote. It makes my vote speak that much more loudly!

(I know Ill get IT for this comment)
I find that voting is useless. One person cant actually change a outcome, because of the way of the electorial process. Also I dont tend to vote because most(or all) candidates say they will do one thing, and either dont or do the opposite. I feel they are all lies being said. So vote all you want, feel you make a difference, we all need something to hold on to and feel we are making a difference.

You know what, there was a time when I would have agreed with you, but now I have changed my mind. I used to detest the voting system because I believed all you did was go in and vote on people. Now I know that you also vote on issues, and that has completely changed my whole voting perspective. I will never miss it again.

It is your chance to do your part and say, “no, I don’t want you dumping toxic waste in my state”, “no, I don’t want you changing my constitutional rights”, “no, I don’t want…”.

Seeing it in that light really does make you think that not voting takes away your right to complain when something goes bad.
