What would happen if "none of the above" actually won an election?
In an election where there are at least 2 viable candidates but we as a people think they won't serve us well and vote "none of the above", what happens when the majority of the votes are "none of the above"?
I believe you can receive less than 50% of the popular vote and win through the electoral college.
That's for the presidential election, what about local elections? I have some that I cannot bring myself to vote for either candidate. I just wonder what would happen if everyone felt that way & voted as such.
I have abstained at time because I didn't like either candidate. But that leaves me feeling empty. I think the best thing is to get involved, become part of the process. But if no one voted, and no one got elected, I dunno.

I am not saying that none of the candidates gathered the 207 electorate votes. I am just stating that a majority of the US citizens vote blank. Will the majority rule?
