Who are you voting for?

Let's be real. It's coming in 2 days.



Say your piece; state your reason. Let's listen first, and judge later.

I'm gonna vote blue for country, because I don't like Paul Ryan and I don't think Romney's promises are actionable. I'll vote red for state because blue wants to tighten regulations on everyone except 'preferred industries'. I'd like the gov to benefit all industries, not just what they prefer.

What about you?

Re: Who are you voting for?

I'm staying Democrat on the ballot for all positions except 3. I'm voting Republican for School Superintendent and Attorney General because they haven't ****ed up and the Democratic candidates look weak. I still have no idea who to for vote for the Senate. I don't agree with Richard Mourdock on anything, Joe Donnelly seems like a conservative Democrat, and the only other guy, Andy Horning, looks like he's running his campaign from his couch. I can't believe I'm wishing I could vote for Dick Lugar. The only 3rd party that gains any notoriety in Indiana, or is even on the ballot I believe, is the Libertarian party. If we could get a far left 3rd party on the ballot, voting would be much easier.

Re: Who are you voting for?

I'll be voting for Obama because, while he's too conservative for my tastes, he's far less terrifying than Mitt Romney. Despite the fact that we disagree on some issues I think Obama is an intelligent and capable president with far more integrity than the competition. Plus, he's a Bears/White Sox/Bulls fan, so you know he's brilliant. I'll be voting for Jessica King for state Senate and Tammy Baldwin for the US Senate... no-brainers given their competition. Tammy Baldwin is the shit... few politicians score as highly in my eyes.

I wish there were viable Green Party candidates... or maybe a labor party that actually represented working people, but oh well.

Re: Who are you voting for?

It doesn't matter, since I live in NY... local elections are the only ones where it makes a bit of difference, and I vote candidate by candidate, often on the Independence Party line, depending on what the local politicians have actually done (or not done)

Give me Gary Johnson. And I want Tammy Baldwin far far away from office.

I will vote on the ballot questions, yes to further marijuana decriminalization, yes to letting people get their cars repaired wherever they want, and yes to allowing people to end their lives painlessly if they choose. Those are legitimate votes. But that's about it.

Hm, I always vote for Cthulhu, but am also a drone fan...

Godzilla is clearly socialist though, so I just can't bring myself to vote for him

Re: Who are you voting for?

Connecticut isn't exactly a swing state, so I'm going with Gary Johnson in the presidential column, because I'd like a Democratic party more concerned with fiscal responsibility or a Republican party that wasn't so caught up in dictating people's personal lives. For Senate, Linda McMahon's essentially promised to not touch Medicare, Social Security, or defense spending, so I'm voting Murphy in hopes that we get a new Republican candidate next time around. Andrew Roraback's the kind of socially moderate Republican I can like, so I'm going with him over Esty in the house. I doubt you guys care where I'm going with the state house and senate votes, but I'm splitting them Republican and Democrat based on the candidates.

Re: Who are you voting for?

I'm on the fence about voting, because frankly it's all bullshit. Nobody, regardless of party affiliation, is going to do half of what they say. It's all just smoke and mirrors, and we don't really know what they plan on doing until it's in the process of being done. If I vote it's going to be for Obama, but my opinion is not strong enough to really care that much.

Politics is pure garbage.

Re: Who are you voting for?

Eh, I actually know both of the candidates running for my district of the CT house of representatives in passing(I could call either on their personal phone if I was really concerned about something), and local politics is where you can actually make a little bit of a difference. I'm mostly showing up to vote for my state senator and rep, but I'll fill out almost the whole ticket.

Re: Who are you voting for?

If I make it out to the polls, Obama for president. I really think both candidates suck, but Obama is the lesser of the two evils, at least as it pertains to issues closest to me.

Re: Who are you voting for?

I'm not convinced Mitt Romney would govern any differently than President Obama. I'll be going to the polls only for the local races, but I will vote against Romney, because I don't want to see any more social conservatives on the Supreme Court in case someone drops dead.

Re: Who are you voting for?

Obama. But i live in NY and Obama gonna win by 30%. Local Elections are Key and should be fun to watch who wins

If you live in places like Ohio or Colorado you really need to get out and vote since most likely its gonna come down to who wins Ohio
