Delection

Lessee ... loser, jerk, nutjob ... and a school bond referendum that's going to pass no matter what people actually vote.

"Abstain" is also an electoral choice, I think I'll take that one this time around.

I'm beginning to think Carlin is right. Elections are an illusion of choice. People will do what they want either way.

Good for you:)

sounds good to me
Yes, which candidate is supporting what I am interested in? Hmm...nobody? Okay then.

I've always wished we had an option during elections: "None of the above" - if that gets the majority of the vote, the other candidates and anyone working for them are disqualified for that particular election, and new ones given a chance. I think it'd be a nice method of generating change in a very stale and recycled political environment, but I doubt any country would implement it.

The problem is that nobody would ever vote for anything else.

Hmm....I suppose it would be more tumultuous, and maybe extend elections beyond what's comfortable....but change is the essence of advancement! And sadly, at least here in Canadian politics, it really seems to be the same old people doing the same things, over and over again. It's enough to make you want to desperately move off-planet.And while I don't really have too much in-depth detail of other country's systems, I've heard similar comments from others, elswhere. Tau Ceti 5, here we come!

Trust me, I came this close to writing that in in the last election here.

actually, as a form of protest, a lot of people are doing it here, too. Apparently spoiled ballots are regarded with some concern by all political parties, since it represents a person motivated enough to vote but (Horrors!) NOT FOR THEM!

Well, I admit, in the end I ended up voting, just not for any of the candidates they had listed on the ballot. Though sadly, I think North Carolina may have ruled that one invalid.

Yes, I feel bad about not voting, but I also can't bring myself to cast a vote in favor of either of these clowns.

I'm abstaining from a few elections, because I know nothing about the candidates. There hasn't even been a media posting in town. The worst part is, some of them have no opponent.
