Do you plan to vote in the '08 primaries? How about in the general election?

I'm not voting in the primaries because I am registered with no party affiliation, and the two-party sham won't allow a non-affiliated voter to vote in the primary.

I will likely vote in the general election, if for no other reason than to cast another futile vote against my district's horrific representative. As for the presidential election, I'll likely cast another futile vote for the Libertarian party candidate since it doesn't seem likely the D's or R's will either one put forth a candidate worth supporting.

I will vote in both, as a matter of civic duty, not that my vote will matter much in either case. By the time Indiana's late primary rolls around, the previous primary races will undoubtedly have alreadu produced an 'heir apparent'. As for the general election, my tiny blue vote always seems to get swallowed up in a sea of electoral red. But I will cast my vote nonetheless, because to do otherwise would be to shirk my responsibility. My vote may not turn the tide, but I will not have it said that I enabled the enemy by failing to vote.

Yes and yes.

Come on, guys, wake up and smell the democracy! Dave, I feel your third party pain. Arkades, I know the red sea that is the Hoosier state is hard to navigate, but you are right, failing to vote = enabling the enemy.

To everyone who thinks their votes don't count: I can only guarantee you that it definitely won't count if you don't cast it.

To everyone who thinks voting isn't enough, I say, RUN FOR OFFICE.

Yes - I will vote in both elections -- even if my vote for a Democratic candidate in Indiana really doesn't result in an Electoral College vote, I do feel that having any votes for Democrats here in Zionsville sends a message that not all folks on the Northside are tried and true Republicans....

Yes. Yes. Go Hillary, Go!
