    Never Have

    I have never voted in any election in my life. I realize this means I have no say in what goes on politically and I do not want a say. I just plain hate politics.

    Used to Get Paid to Vote....

    "Democracy is a con game.

    It's a word invented to placate people to make them accept a given institution. All institutions sing, 'We are free.' The minute you hear 'freedom' and 'democracy', watch out...because in a truly free nation, no one has to tell you you're free." -Jacque Fresco

    So, here's the game plan: How bout NOONE show up at the poll booths this election? Yes, we'd still have a President elected. It would probably be determined by the Electorial College. And yeah, several of us would STILL be p!ssed at who got it. But THE PEOPLE will have VOICED...

    Politicians love to emphasize the importance of

    voting, often stating that you have no right to complain when you do not cast a vote on a party or a party leader. I tend to look at it from a different, albeit somewhat idealistic, angle. By not casting my vote I cannot be held responsible for whatever form of mismanagement...

    It's An Illusion

    I refuse to vote because the idea that votes have anything to do with who gets into office is a joke, an illusion that the government uses to make people feel like they matter.  I will not participate in such an obvious scam, even if I like a particular candidate, because I...

    I'm not a very political person, and both sides of the election have their ups and downs. While choosing a good, I might also choose a bad... and a million other such notions. Best for me to mind my own business and let what happens happen.

    Politics Are Stupid

    I don't vote.  I never have.  I can't imagine putting that much thought and effort into something that I know in my heart is a cruel joke anyway.  I can't spend hours pouring over the fine details so I'd know which mudslinging party to believe.  No thanks.

    Why I Don't Vote

    It's actually just because I'm not an American citizen. I'm Israeli, and I don't want to give up my allegiance to that country. Otherwise, I would always, always vote.

    Pointless.

    OK I'm not interested in politics, but what the hell's the point in voting? Here there's only 2 parties that can win and they're both the same! They promise you the earth when they want your vote, then stick up the middle finger after people fall for it. Not for me thank you!

    So, all the voting in this country is done

    electronically. So, in theory, the voting systems could be rigged to have a set percentage of votes for candidate A and candidate 1; this would mean that no matter who you vote for, your response is changed at a random, along with all the other voters', to match these...

    The reason I dont vote is based on the tax system. I dont think the system is fair. If my vote is equal to yours then I should pay the same amount of taxes that YOU Do. But this has not been the case. Take a look at the 2006 IRS tax statistics. You have 1% of the nation, who...
