Do feel that voting makes a difference in your life, explain why or why not, or just yes or no.

... and yes, it does make a differrence. it;s the right we have, and when we dont participate it makes comlaining about the laws pretty pointless. we have been afforded the right to give our input, but so little of us actually do it... myself included :(

Yes I voted. I think it matters for everything except the president. The President is picked by the electorial college not the popular vote.

I definitely voted last night and I feel very victorious. I feel like it was my foot that kicked Rumsfeld down and I feel like it was my vote that has begun to make everything better. hahaha. Or atleast I like to tell myself that.

Yes I voted. I think that voting makes a difference in your own life, not so much a difference in the system--not individually. But I believe that is our greatest freedom, and I believe that we are given that freedom because there has to be something legitimate, that we can feel good about participating in. I say it's legitimate because, while the electoral vote is what counts for the presidential election, everything else is up to the citizens. One vote may not make a difference, but if everyone thought this way, there would be no one voting for anything. It's kind of a domino effect.

I didn't get to this time. :( I just recently moved into the place i'm at right now and i had forgotten to register here. There is NO doubt i'll be there for 2008 presidential election.

I voted. I think that is important to vote as it is a right and a privledge. I believe that whether your choices won or loss you have a right to voice your opinion as to the way things are in your country if you vote. If you do not vote then how can you complain about the way things are if you did not use the one option we have to make a change? Freedom is not free, many have paid with their lives to give us the right to be free. My belief is you are wasting your rights if you do not vote.

no i did not vote because i recently moved to this state and was not registered which i found out yesterday. i will have to wait for the 2008 president election. i think that voting does not make much of a difference to me because most of the candidates bad mouth each other so much that it is hard to even make a choice because they all seem shady.
