    I vote in every election, and I often will do a write in ballot.

    I do not vote in that many primaries, as the Conservative Party of NY usually does not have primaries (NY is a closed state)

    Vote early. Vote often.

    I was concerned that my grandfather (who was born in Massachusetts) voted for Martha Coakley rather than Scott Brown. (Of course, he's been with the Lord for the 30 years.)

    I vote every chance I get! Even in the local elections.

    Friend of Spurgeon, that was funny!

    In New York we have elections at least once a year.

    Federal (congress - Pres) are held the same year with State - Assembly and Gov; in off election years we have county and town elections.

    School distict elections (budget and board of education) are held about in April or May - unless you live in a major city, then the city council votes on the school budget, and the board of education is voted on during the Novemeber election on the off-Federal cycle. Then Village elections are held usually in March.

    I voted for the first time in 1960, for Richard Nixon for President.

    I have not missed an election, primary or general, since then.

    I don't think I have ever missed voting in an election since I turned 18.
    While in the Coast Guard I voted using an absentee ballot.

    Ah yes, voting...it all comes back to me now...

    threats, intimidation, fears of violence, lawlessness, and chaos...one fears for one's own life...


    Oh...wait a minute. My bad. That's business meeting I'm thinking about. :eek: :D :D
