Poll
Should I vote?
Yes, but only because I want you to vote for a specific candidate
Yes, but I don't care who you vote for
Yes, because it's your duty as an American citizen (or some other patriotic mumbo jumbo)
No, but only because the choices suck
No, because your vote doesn't really count
No, because I don't want you voting for a certain candidate
Some other possibility (explain in your reply)

Yes. It's your right as a citizen and one for which Americans have literally died to provide you.

Yes. You live in a Republic. You will rarely get to vote on direct issues and the people elected to represent you will do so for years at a time.

Yes. A relatively small portion of the American public votes so your vote actually carries more weight than merely one person. It also gives you an opportunity to learn about the issues AND elections typically involve more than merely one issue or candidate.

Yes. When you exercise the franchise, it ties you more directly to the results and engenders more of a feeling of responsibility for the outcome.

But don't stop there. Involve yourself in local politics. Serve on a jury. But, if you don't vote don't come in here complaining about the outcome.

I refuse to listen to the political opinion of people who haven't voted. That said we don't usually have a binary choice at least in theory.
