Yes.



"Liberalism" is a product of the enlightenment, and encompasses principles of self government, democracy, and free market trade. So for that reason voting is liberal.



It is ALSO "conservative.". If you take conservative to mean the act of conserving the system we have in place, which is (obviously) based on the right to vote.



The question becomes, which version of that system are we conserving? Seem "Conservatives" grappled with that this year and opted to "conserve" a system we did away with circa 1965, where the disenfranchisement of minorities is commonplace, rather than the system we'veatt,pted to develop since then.

It depends if there are more people who want the government to be their Mommy.

If so then voting is LIBERAL.

If there are more people who want to live on their own and make their own way in life, then it will be conservative.
