I would imagine that they can vote for themselves. They definitely aren't going to vote for their opponent and I would guess that they still vote~ who know?

It wouldn't be cheating if they vote for themselves. It is their right to vote for who they feel is the best candidate. It would be shocking if they voted for their opponet.

They have the right to vote in all the elections just like we do. I would imagine they would vote for themselves and not for the person running against them. But that is between them and the ballot box.

Yes, they can vote for themselves. I wouldn't think any of them would vote for their opponent; they would have to be pretty dumb to do that! lol They have the same rights all other citizens do.

i would think they would remove where they are running out of the questions or something

I would think so. Even the candidates retain the right to vote, although it may seem to be a little arrogant or narcisstic to vote for yourself. But then again, to be elected to need to be confident in yourself enough to vote for yourself.

It'd be silly for them to vote for their opponent. I know if I was in office, no matter what that office would be, I'd vote for myself.
