    So, are you? Are you not? Why or why not?

    Good candidates, bad candidates, no difference between candidates, no point in voting - the number of possibilities would, by comparison, require a D&D game to have 5 or 6 of those 20-sided dice...

    I live in Oregon. We do vote by mail so I couldn't select a choice.

    I just got my voters guide. Seven choices for president/VP! A veritable political cornucopia.

    There is no way in hell I would ever stay home and NOT cast a vote against everything Trump stands for.

    Mail in, but yes. Not that it matters for the Presidential choice of course, but I do want my voice heard for the local elections.

    Absolutely. If you can preorder an iPhone you better find time to vote.

    Yep I plan to vote. I buy pizza on the way back. Election days are the only times I get pizza. I love pizza. Wild boars couldn't keep me from driving to the polling place and coming back by way of the pizza shop.

    Obviously I am a patriotic American in being so determined to use my right to vote.

    I can't vote for that evil bitch, and I can't vote for someone that doesn't really want the job.

    Ditto.

    It is going to be interesting. With California's "top two primary" for many offices, the important election was months ago. This round, there's no way to place a protest vote, other than to leave many choices blank.

    If I were in your shoes, I'd third party it.

    Just got registered in Alaska after moving here a week or so ago. I plan to vote. I'd love to be able to find some state specific polls for here to see if it is worth casting a vote for a third party. I know Clinton won't win the state, but it tends to be one of the better ones for third parties so I wouldn't mind helping one of them over the top in one state if the polling looks at all like there might be a chance.

    I don't agree with either of the two. Politics, personal lives, attitudes, etc. I don't believe either are worthy of my vote.

    Typically I take a much less apathetic viewpoint. Voting for the lesser of two evils is better than nothing at all. You can still end up voting for the party and it's beliefs rather than the person.

    The problem is I see both as having their own set of political and personal issues. In my mind both have their own unique sets of flaws that I cannot reconcile.

    I strongly suspect Hillary will be a shoe in by Election Day, bearing no crazy scandal on her end. I am registered to vote in a primarily democrat state so I don't see a vote either way having much influence. At the end of the day I will know no be selling myself out and perpetuating a cycle of less than ideal candidates. And I can live with that.

    We supposedly elect who we as a nation want in power. Therefore who we end up with is who we (as a nation) deserve. I don't think it's either of these two.

    How can Hillary be sworn in if we don't vote for her?!
