Are you registered to vote? Do you vote in primaries, run-offs and Election Day?
I vote only on election day and only on Presidential elections...
Yes I'm registered to vote (my kids and husband too). And I'm an election judge, a job we take very seriously! I vote in all elections - the city and state ones are just as important as federal elections and sometimes have a greater impact on our day to day lives.
I got mad at my (military) son when he told me several years ago he wasn't going to vote in the presidential election. I told him he should esp. vote b/c that man was going to be the one to decide if he was sent to a battle field or not. For years, my vote and my husband's cancelled each other but that didn't stop us from casting our ballot.
I get annoyed with people who don't vote, don't take part in any "civil" discussion and debate of issues and then sit around and complain about the country. I guess I was just raised in an era when it was considered our civic duty to vote, serve if possible or volunteer (in our communities, Vista, AmeriCorps, Peace Corpse, etc). I don't think they really teach that in schools anymore.
Yes I am registered to vote and I vote in primaries, local, school, state and national elections. After all, my father who is buried in a veteran's cemetery and served in combat during WW II and re-upped for Korea (I'm an Army brat) and the only lottery I ever won was the 1970 draft, reaffirms my belief that freedom isn't free and it has been won by the blood, sweat and tears of those who allow others the freedoms they have. For me...and I can only speak for me...to not vote is to not be a patriot of the country I love. I personally don't know how people can just walk away from elections with a cavalier attitude of "so what." Would they feel the same if they lived in a country that didn't allow free elections or are they just too lazy to stand in a line and perform their patriotic duty?
I always vote in all elections. I think this is a sacred privilege and there are so many countries where the population is not allowed to vote. I don't particularly like the way the elections have gone in recent history, as it seems like whoever has the most money wins in many cases. I think the amount of voter fraud is also a big problem.
Even knowing those problems, I think not voting will not change anything. I would love to see a whole new Congress that better represents all the people living in American and fewer professional politicians. I hate the political phone calls from anyone. I hope that our votes will make a difference.
Yes I am a registered voter and vote in all elections primaries, run-off and on Election Day. Voting is one of the many privileges we have that can make a difference unlike some other countries of the world.
We as individuals must make an effort to vote to voice our opinion whether it is about a candidate or an issue on the ballot such as a bond issue. We must make sure our voices are heard and thi can only happen through our votes.
I feel as if it is my civic duty to vote, so yes is the answer to your question.
Yes I'm registered but usually only vote on election day. Sometimes I vote in primaries but it has to be something that is something I feel passionate about.

Are you going out to vote this coming Presidential election, why or why not?In 2008, we saw that Americans went out and vote. While some people don't vote at all, others support their party but don't go out and vote. How about you, are you going to cast your vote and let your voice be heard?

How can low percentage turnouts in important elections be improved?Recently in the UK we had local council elections and the turnout was very low - only about 1 in 3 voted. Is this the same in your country? If so, how can it be improved?
