  • poll: Are you voting today?

    Yes, I plan to/have already stopped at a polling location today

    No, because I voted early via absentee or some other early voting method

    Not sure, maybe if I have time

    No, I only vote in presidential elections

    No, I never vote

    Other... and I'll explain!

    @jindc: I was 100% joking, but yes I normally receive a letter in the mail telling me where to vote every election. I live in NYC and I think because space is super limited, it keeps getting changed – I’ve never voted in the same place twice. I’ve never heard of that republican mantra, I don’t think it makes a difference if someone is republican or democrat, everyone is responsible for getting out and voting!

    Im not voting but its not because I only vote in presidential elections or I dont vote – its just that I am not familiar with the candidates in this race and dont like to vote when I am uninformed. Its my own fault because I havent taken the time to become knowledgeable about them, but oh well.

    I’m not voting because I’m in Iraq and didn’t get the chance to send off my absentee ballot!  ๐Ÿ™

    @moderndaisy: MY BF is registered in NYC to vote (as an independant) and he never recieved anything either, just as an fyi.

    I voted on my way to work.  I hope to never miss an election–primaries included!

     

    EDIT–I’d like to add that you can find your polling place by contacting your local registrar of voters (most have websites by now) or by clicking this link, to Google’s application.

    @moderndaisy: Haha you’re not the only non Dem on the UWS–DH is a staunch libertarian. Unfortunately, it’s not a well known/popular party, so they never win!

    @hilsy85: Haha, we should have him over for a non-Dem pity party! Seriously though, I love our neighborhood so in general I have no complaints other than the politicians attacking me on my way to work in the morning.

    Not voting this time and it’s totally my fault.  ๐Ÿ™  Like a couple other bees I recently moved to a different state but don’t want to give up my residency yet and getting an absentee ballot wasn’t anywhere on my radar.  Looks like no complaining about the government for me this year!  ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I voted at 7:30am.  I like in a pretty big city but there was NO line.  I walked right up and was done in less than 5 minutes.  Plenty of parking and I was early for work!

    Granted I didn’t pay much attention to any campaigns… DVR = no political ads! hey. but I just across the party voted. there ya go.

    I voted last week and spent the rest of my free time volunteering for our governor’s campaign in my new state.  I finished making calls last night.

    I try to stay very informed and when it comes to my civic responsibilities I try to go the extra mile.  I think of it as an investment in my child’s future!

    It makes me really sad when people choose not to vote ๐Ÿ™

    Going to vote tonight! Couldn’t drag myself outta bed this morning, so I guess I will have to wait in line with everyone else!! Any NYC’ers have issues with the new ballot system? I didn’t vote in the primaries (as I choose not to affiliate myself with one party) and didn’t get to test it then!

    @TinyTina: my BF went this morning and said it was pretty easy… Just bring a black pen, just in case they don’t have them there!
