Are you a registered voter?

It seems like today more than ever it is important for everyone to get out there and vote. So, are you a registered voter? Do you make it out for every vote including your local issues, or do you just vote the major elections like the presidential race? Also, do you vote for the candidate you think is best for the job or do you vote strictly for a party?

Yes, I vote in every election, including the local races, and no, I don't vote the party...I vote for who I believe is the best choice.

The day I turned 18 I registered, I feel everyone should especially if you feel the need to complain about things, because if you vote it's your right to do so, if you don't vote then I feel you shouldn't complain.

Yes, I am a registered voter. I do vote in local elections and think everyone should. I know a lot of people only vote in Presidential elections, but they would be better off if they paid attention to local issues as well. I am a registered Democrat and always have been. However, I have on occasion voted for a Republican and an Independent candidate for State and Local offices. I have never voted for a Republican for President, not even Ronald Reagan! lol My parents, both registered Democrats, voted for Reagan, but soon regreted it. This year, there is not one Republican candidate that I will be voting for. Not one. So my vote this year will be straight Democrat. I am personally tired of the way that Republicans have run my country into the ground.

I am a registered voter and I do vote every presidential election. If I'm clued in enough to give an intelligent vote, I will vote on local things but that doesn't always happen. I will not vote if I do not know enough about the issues. I also do not affiliate with any particular party. I vote based on values and who I think is best suited for that particular position. I do notice that my votes tend to lean just a tad more democratic than republican.

I have been registered to vote ever since I was old enough. I always vote, whether it is for local or national elections. I also vote for the European elections. I think if you do not vote you have no right to moan about what the government does. If you want your member of parliament to help you in any way you need to vote for them. The MP we have at the moment is very good. He lives in the area and his children go to the local school. He also belongs to the party I prefer but I would vote for him even if he belonged to another party because he is good. In the other elections I vote for party.

Yes I'm a registered voter and I do go vote for local issues as well. And I vote for the person that I think can do the best job, I have been an Independent for the past 15 years but, after this election I have decided to become a Democrat.
