Now that the elections and the hype is over, I would like to know do you vote every election, just went the mood hits you, never and why or why not Here in Canada we just had an election and only 51 percent of people went out to vote, it was really bad, but canadians in general are tired of voting, our governemnt has come to a vote 4 times in 6 years and it is ridiculous. so from whatever country you live in, do you go out and vote, why, how, how often or why not.

I have not voted in every election since I have been able to vote. Now that I am older I do see that for president that each and every vote does count. I don't vote in each of our city elections.

I have and still do vote every election and even the primarys. It is a pleasure to know that I had a say somewaht in the elections etc. It is a privelage to vote also I feel as well as a right etc. Here in Minnesota we had an 87% turnout this past election day. Not quite a record. That was 88% in 2000. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I did not even register to vote when I became of age. I used to think that our vote didn't count then found out it did. Then I moved out of my county a few times and was not in other counties long enough to register to vote.

One year I did not vote. Mainly because I knew who would win even without my vote and because if I voted I would get called for jury duty and in my job I spent enough time testifying in court so I did not want it to interfere with my job.

I haven't voted for years, too hard to get around, but I was called for Jury duty, can you imagine that.

I have only missed one presidental election since I became old enough to vote. I would've voted against the person that had one, but I was only one and he won by many more than that. Maybe if more people that election cycle had voted he would've lost, but I rather think not. I can't say I have voted in every single local election, or even every primary, but I've been voting since I was 18 and am now 54 (almost 55.)
