    THIS BELONGS IN THE POLITICAL SECTION - NOT FOR SALE/WANTED...

    Since the 1st of the year I've made a real effort to try and find if people actually vote. I've talked to middle class, upper middle and upper class people from all over the country and have worked voting into the conversation. It absolutely amazes me how many don't vote but also haven't even registered to vote. Just think we actually go to war with some frikkin country just so their people can go the polls. It goes without saying that the biggest mouthes are the one that haven't seen the inside of a polling place. Just my own little poll You guys should try it. Thanks for listening Jim

    I have not missed an election yet and don't plan to. My first election was for state people. My second was for Pre. I voted for Reagan.

    At work we had a guy who loved to talk about the Gov. One day about 6 or 7 of us were talking and I said "Wait wait wait a min. I looked at one guy and said DID YO VOTE? YES. The next guy DID YOU VOTE? Yes and so on till I got to this one guy and he said NO. I looked at him and said SHUT UP. You do not have the right to talk about the gov or how thing are. He wanted to fight but everyone said hey he's right you don't vote and because you don't vote you lost your right to lalk. Another person even added that he wasn't even registed to vote. They all backed me and told him to walk away. Boy was he mad at me. LOL. Hey you don't vote then you don't talk or complain on how things are run.

    I get angry with folks that are always putting some elected official down and when I ask who did you vote for and they say I didn't vote. I usually tell them that they have a right to an opinion but since they didn't vote they lost the right to express it. Jackie B. Oh, and yes I vote.

    Do people who don't vote, really admit it?? I would be ashamed if i didn't vote. I have always thought it as not only my right but my privledge. Have voted every election i could since turning 18.

    I admit I didn't vote until my mid 20's. Although I live in NY and my vote for President doesn't really matter, still do it.

    I have voted in every election since 1968. I won't even talk (argue) politics with anyone including friends and Children who do not vote.

    I started voting in 1966 at the age of 21. Haven't missed one yet and now vote early in case something happens. I express my opinion loudly from time to time and agree with others on here saying "if you don't vote you have lost your right to complain".

    I have voted in EVERY Local, State and National election since 1961. We even vote NO in most School budget votes even though we are outnumbered by the 18 year old kids who want to make sure they don't lose Music, Football, Skiing, etc. Larry Evans

    There was an old lady who I would take to town every so often. It was time to vote and I offered to take her in. She is a Dem and I'm a Rep. She said No, you'll just cancel my vote. OH thats what you think? Tell you what I'll vote first and then let you vote so you can cancel my vote how's that? She laughed but still said no to going. Even she had the right to vote.

    Voting is not only your constitutional right, in my mind it is your constitutional obligation.
