    Do you mean presidential or overall?

    I plan to vote on Saturday and presidential will be Democrat (Obama).

    I'm behind but I haven't looked to see if I have other options. They will either be Democrat or 3rd party as most Republicans recently are rah rah tea party.

    I meant the President. I couldn't change the poll though.

    Gary Johnson for president

    An even mix of Republican and Democrat for just about everything else.

    A friend told me that there are 14 choices for President on Colorado ballots. I haven't voted yet.

    I'll be voting straight Democratic as I do every election.

    It's not that I'm a partisan hack, it's that the Republicans are ****ing crazy.

    There is only one Republican I'll be voting for- Judy Baar Topinka. But I suppose most Teapublicans would call her a RINO.

    Democrats across the board. Obama for President, because I have this odd desire to have the same civil rights as everyone else. Elizabeth Warren for Senator, because Scott Brown is another misogynist politician.

    I'm an independent (unaffiliated) voter and I will be voting down-the-line Democratic on Election Day. I don't agree with everything they support, but there is no other realistic choice. I don't do 3rd party unless they have a chance, and I certainly don't do batshyt crazy liars so Republicans are out across the board.

    Yep. Couldn't have said this better myself. This is exactly what I'm doing too.

    I'll be splitting my ticket. Democrat at the top and the congressional race and a few Republicans on local and state races.

    I have before, but this year the Democratic candidates are simply better than the Republican counterparts at the national level and at the local level several of the Republican candidates are "tea party" bean-brains who don't understand the job they're applying for.

    I will be voting straight Democrat across the board.

    As soon as I see a Republican who has actually served in office, stood up the the Republican Party and supports ...

    • a woman's right to choice
    • strong environmental protection
    • regulation of business and financial institutions
    • unions
    • Climate Change as a real issue
    • alternative energies
    • raising revenues through increased taxation
    • reducing military spending
    • Social Security
    • Medicare
    • Obamacare

    Then I'd be happy to consider voting for them.

    I have a huge gripe. i've had it for years.

    On the local election level none of the judges have any party affiliation. I understand they are supposed to be impartial but I also know they all belong to some party.

    Every time I vote I NEVER vote for a specific judge. Instead I "write-in" my choice . In this years case I wrote "Progressive Party".

    I can. Changed!

    I voted for Gary Johnson. Out of the top two I'd choose Obama but I feel certain enough he's going to win that I decided to throw my vote for what I actually wanted. So if Romney wins you can blame (or thank) me.

    President of the United States: Mitt Romney
    California Senator: Elizabeth Emken (R)
    Congress: Buck McKeon (R)

    I won’t vote Republican across the board. The three I listed are my top priority.

    So, basically, you'll vote for Democrats to influence your local policy, but Republicans for the positions that influence the policies for the rest of the country. That's a strange dynamic.

    My vote is not of much consequence here, so I will probably vote SWP for president. That is the only entry on the ballot that has more than two lines (aside from the write-in line), so I will probably vote not-R in all the other races.

    But we have an interesting slate of issues to vote on: charter schools (bleaurgh), gay marriage and marijuana legalization, so that should be interesting.

    I live in Massachusetts, so I can vote my conscience in the presidential election, though I understand people in other states are not so lucky as to have a vote that doesn't count. So doing, I am voting for Jill Stein (Green Party). For Senate, I will vote for Warren (D) over Brown (R).

    Thanks Panda. Can you maybe change the closing date to Nov. 6th ? I typed in the wrong voting date.

    :eek:
