If you don't vote, your giving a candidate you dislike the most a chance of possibly winning. No way am I going to give Donald Trump that chance.

you should still look at and vote for the propositions, even if you don't like either candidate.

Most of the posts on this thread are ignorant young people saying voting doesn't matter. Maybe if you have no future it doesn't, but for those of us that work it does. There are always local taxes and local representatives on the ballot that affect your life waaaay more that the Presidential election. I live in Texas, so Donald Trump will probably get those 45 electoral votes unless he takes his meltdown to the next stage. I'm still voting regardless.Texas politicians pound their chest about no state income taxes, but they find other ways to nickel and dime us. Mostly because ignorant people think voting doesn't make a difference.

I have never missed a vote since I turned 18 a looooooong time ago. Way too many people have died to protect that right, and I think it's disrespectful to just throw that right away.

If I were American I'd be voting for a 3rd party. If you don't like the 2 main choices then choose another. It may be considered a "protest vote" but you underestimate how much of a difference this can make. All the minor parties support the alternative vote system (which helps break the 2 party monopoly) so voting for them would possibly make sure this doesn't have to happen again. America needs a multi party system which allows for co-operation with a 3rd party.

America is so pessimistic about this election. It doesn't have to be a choice between stupid and evil. Look at the other parties running and maybe you'll find a better option.

Sit out? No.

Personally refuse to jump on any candidate bandwagons ahead of time before I'm in the polling office? Seems very likely for this presidential race.

I agree. You gotta vote.

It's hard, especially this year, but y'all gotta vote.

If you think both parties are the same, you're mentally lazy or lack critical thinking skills. "Both parties are the same" is a cop-out used by people pretending they're above it all. Republicans and Democrats differ on tax policy, Social Security, Medicare, Defense, immigration, voting rights, women's rights, and LGBT rights to name some of the major few differences.

The only thing they agree on to some extent is letting corporations dictate rules in certain industries and trade deals like TPP. Only a few Democrats and Republicans understand how technology works, like Rob Wyden, and stand up for American privacy rights. If you think Elizabeth Warren is the same as Mitch McConnell, you're ignorant. It just means you're too lazy to actually read and understand their positions in detail, and "both parties are the same" is just a way to cover your ignorance by pretending you actually understand the issues.

If I didn't have transportation trouble the day of the MA primary, our district would have been one vote closer to electing Bernie, and given him that many more delegates.
(Heard it was literally a difference of double or triple-digit votes, in some districts.)

NEVER. AGAIN. As I didn't already have Al Gore as the reason never to miss another election.
In fact, Al Gore's already been Hillary-stumping "Your vote counts...I should know!"

Not to mention, we've got legalization on the state ballot this year (OO-hoo-hoo...<pounds fists expectantly> ), and the Republican ads against expanding charter schools have been so royally obnoxious this year, I'm comin' to shut them up even if I have to get there on a mule.
