I agree, go vote, as long as you have taken the time to review the candidates and issues on your ballot.

 

An uninformed voter is like an ignorant fisherman, polluting the lake and keeping everything he catches, regardless of size or quantity.  They basically mess it up for those who know what they are doing.

Being informed doesn't always preclude ignorance....depends on where you get your info.  Campaign ads have gotten out of control.  I'll stop there, before getting too political. I say just vote, even if it's along party lines - at least you've expressed your will, and most are pretty familiar with the broad stance on issues.

 

I'm also not sure how voting works elsewhere, but in NY, we have several propositions on the back of the voter card - always check for those, and vote on them too!

Just got done voting on my lunch break. Had to do a affidavit to vote since it was my first time in 10 years. They were saying it's the most affidavit ballots they have very done because so many people are voting this election.

Hit the polls at 6:15 this AM.

Got to vote for my man, twice.

Once to fill Cantor's two weeks and once to fill Cantor's position.

Polls were light turnout.

I got my sticker that I voted, too.

Actually it does, for ignorance is defined as the lack of knowledge.  Being informed and making bad decisions isn't ignorance, it is stupidity.  Neither ignorance nor stupidity is a good quality for a potential voter or a bass fisherman.

 

Partisanship, voting along party lines ignorantly, is like making lure choice based on manufacturer.  Rapala makes a lot of good crankbaits, but limiting yourself to only the DT series & never even considering any other models from Strike King or any other manufacturer isn't the best way to determine what is the best lure for the situation.

 

I'm trying to keep a fishing angle to this political discussion... :)

Excepts in the Constitution for voting eligibility:

Birth - "All persons born or naturalized" "are citizens" of the United States and the U.S. state where they reside (14th Amendment, 1868)
"Race, color, or previous condition of servitude" - (15th Amendment, 1870)
"On account of sex" - (19th Amendment, 1920)
In Washington, D.C., presidential elections (23rd Amendment, 1961)
(For federal elections) "By reason of failure to pay any poll tax or other tax" - (24th Amendment, 1964)

(For state elections) Taxes - (14th Amendment; Harper v. Virginia Board of Elections, 383 U.S. 663 (1966))

"Who are eighteen years of age or older, to vote, shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of age" (26th Amendment, 1971).
 

Nowhere is it mentioned that you can't vote if you're ignorant or stupid.

 

Don't like it, get out and vote.....

 

I think that's as far as this thread can go here.
