Would you support a voting boycott next election to insist politicians fix America's voting issues?


We've already seen what happens when most of the country doesn't vote - but, we're still here. People on both political sides have talked about how our election process needs to be fixed, updated or whatever. The topic often comes up, but after elections are over - it doesn't get talked much about again until the next election comes. If we took the time to alter our voting processes for the better - more people might come out to vote because they'll trust the process & feel that their vote will actually count. This 'movement' could become the new tea party, LoL! What do you think?

    Most people actually think they elect the president and have no idea what or why the EC even is. Eliminating it won't make people any less ignorant. The system works fine, people need to adjust to it, not the other way around.

    Since voting does not directly elect the president it absolutely would not matter if you "boycotted" the election. The status quo rules here, not personal opinion. Become an American citizen&learn the process then talk about system rectifications

    If we agree with your 1st sentence, 2/3rds of voters who stayed home bcuz they didn't like either candidate committed treason. We can do that again to make them re-analyze & update our system even if its only 4 tech & consistency across state
