How to convince someone to vote even if they just write someone in?
And should you even try to? Would it make a difference if it was a family member over a friend?
Write in candidates are not possible in most states. I vote whenever I can. However, being an independent I am usually not allowed to vote in party primaries. Louisiana is going back to its open primary, where all candidates, regardless of party run together and the two higher vote getters, unless someone does get more than 50 percent of the vote, will run against each other in a runoff--even if they are in the same party.
Voting is not an absolute value. Deliberately refusing to vote as a protest of the poor choices with which we are presented is a legitimate act of civic responsibility, sometimes the most ethical position to take. Therefore there are times one should not persuade. You have to know the person and the situation pretty well in order to make a decision to attempt to convince him to vote. If you do not, then stay out of it. It's none of your business.

Do you think people should have to display an understanding of politics before being allowed to voteI don't mean an in-depth understanding, just a basic one of how government works and what each party/candidate stands for.
