If there's a topic like this then please close!

I just voted for the (Government and municipal election) first time in my life a few hours ago!

Have you ever voted? How was the first time you voted and how did it feel?

I must say, I felt a bit old when I got the chance to vote for the first time.

Yeah, for the first time very recently. I voted on a thing that was essentially against building more houses on open field areas around my village.

in my current country of residence, all political parties are either racist and incompetent or pretentious and incompetent. The current ones in power are the first of the the two.

I refuse to vote for the the government of this country as the general public in this 3rd world country lacks the capacity for critical thinking and therefor believes the lies told during the campaigns.

i plan on voting when i move back to canada though!

Yes, Sweden is a monarchy. However, the King is basically just a symbol for the country and nothing more. Btw, he has no political influence at all. Infact if I remember correctly then he and his family is the only family in Sweden who isn't allowed to vote.

This is basically the only thing the King does;

I don't like to vote but it's my Civil duty to vote and if I feel like it I will go but half the time I forget and don't get the chance to vote and in the end I sit there thinking if my vote was the deciding vote to change our country into either a New Golden Era or the Fall and Destruction of it and then I realized that theres a ton of people in America so yeah.

No, and I don't wanna.

it's compulsory to vote here in Australia, which is a pain in the ....

honestly envy americans, they don't have to vote if they don't want to. compulsory voting is a form of oppression. (and I'm aware certain groups of people had to fight for their rights to vote, but I don't want it. it's oppressive to force me to do something I don't wanna do.)




i vote for something really obscure, like "The people's party for legalisation of Euthanasia"

I voted during the recent presidency election. It was my first time voting.

There was a lot to it than just voting for a person.

Voting about state's budget on public projects, tax inflation, commercial expansion, etc.

I was not just going to waltz there, vote for the guy I liked and just check "yes" on the rest of the choices. That's not iTunes' or Apple's long ass Terms & Conditions agreement that I could just skip.

Yes, I've voted. It felt like I was voting for the lesser of two evils. My interests are biological sciences, and so, for the sake of medical advancement, letting the US conservative party take over is quite bad for medical advancement due to their being heavily against stem cell research. Other reason is that I believe in human equality above and beyond religious objections.
