Are you planning to vote tomorrow?

SpiderSpider Posts: 3,380Registered Users
I'm not sure. We've moved since the last election and I'm not sure if I'm registered in my new area (or where is would be) or have to go to my old neighborhood.

Besides that, in most races, I have no idea about the candidates. I would mainly vote (again) to try to out someone that should have retired a long time ago. :?

    I'm minimally informed about the candidates but I have a good inkling. There are also several propositions on the table that I need to decide on.

    I'll just go online do some research and make my decision. It's not so hard to find info on the issues and on candidates these days.

    I'm voting. I don't have a reason not to participate.

    A very very very long time ago. You can hardly even understand what she says with her speech in such poor state.

    I'm voting tomorrow. Although most of the candidates I'm voting for are assured to win by a large margin, there's a gay marriage amendment on the ballot that I feel very strongly about. It's not only incredibly discriminatory, but it's worded in such a way that about 75% of the people affected by it would be straight couples. I disagree with both the message it sends and its legal ramifications for gay and straight couples, businesses, UW-Madison, the state, etc.

    Definitely. Besides the ballot proposals, the governor's race in my state is important to me.

    Yes. I cannot NOT vote.

    As futile as it feels, I must vote against the majority's proposition of one man one woman marriage hooey. I know it will pass anyway, but if I don't vote against it, I won't be able to stand it.

    I already voted absentee, so the answer would be no.
    I will be very glad when it is wednesday and all those negative political ads will be over.

    I also can't wait until the ads are done with. The governer I plan to vote for is likely going to win by a nice margin, and the rest I'll probably vote down party lines. There's no other big races here.

    There are three ballot questions, one of which is pretty major and I think both sides have some valid points: it's about selling wine in grocery stores.

    I wondered if you would know who I was talking about :wink: For her own health she should retire! I do like Lugar though, and I had a bad dream about Melina K the other night :lol:

    I'm also sick of the ads.

    Yes, definitely. Our senate race is one of the closest in the nation.

    I'm sick of the ads too, but I feel like that is kind of the price we pay to live in a democracy where we have a say in our government. And considering the alternative, I don't think it's a large price.

    Yes. We have a hot race here for Congress and I want to put my vote in.

    Yes, and I'm sick of the Senate and Governor ads.

    I do hope that Santorum gets the boot.

    Obviously I can't vote, but I am counting down the days until those stupid election ads stop running. I'll also be glad when those recordings stop calling - we get 5 or 6 a day!

    Only 4 more years!
    Until then, I'm voting in the Student Council Elections at school. The e-mails I've been getting from the candidates have been just as bad as the ones on TV for the real elections.

    Ugh, so you get a double dose of political ads!

    I will be voting tomorrow. We have a big US Senate race (Lamont vs. Lieberman) and the incumbent representative in my district is in a real tight race with his opponent, so I will vote to try and oust him.

    Agreed. I'm going to have to shampoo the carpet in my living room on Wed. So much mud has been slung I'm afraid it's going to rot the carpet under my television :P . We've got a gubernatorial (sp?) election tomorrow too (South Carolina, with a horrible incumbent running, once voted worst governor, don't get me started.), as well as the other Constitutional offices, and, of course, just to add to all the drama, a vote on a marriage amendment.


    It's gotten pretty ugly here, lately.

    ETA: Yes, I will be voting tomorrow. Forgot that's why I was posting in the first place.

    Yup, we both will.

    I'll do anything to help Deval Patrick win the race. And I hope when he gets into office he employs Grace Ross b/c I think she has some great ideas.

    Melina K would give everyone nightmares lol. The principal at Kitley told me Julia was going to come there to talk to the kids sometime this year, I cracked a joke about her might not making it due to age and would the kids even understand what she said.....I don't think he found it to funny though lolol

    I am a permanent absentee voter (that way I never skip an election), and I mailed my ballot this morning. I have to admit I skipped things on the ballot that I really didn't feel informed enought about to make an intelligent decision. California has too many darned ballot measures.
