      1. I’ve really never been inconvenienced when voting. Even when we lived in the city. It’s generally easy, breezy. I know that’s far the case in many places though. 😕

      1. I always vote on the day of, I’m not a fan of voting early. I think it has the potential for too much corruption. But I know many who make use of voting early. Including my parents who are in their 80’s. They mailed their vote in, and here in Southern New Jersey voting day was stormy with bad weather almost the whole day. I guess there are pros and cons to voting early. I hope I am always able to vote the day of though. I’m laughing. I doubt you thought you would get an epistle for such an easy question.

      2. No, I appreciate your answer. In our county the lines the day of are very long so I vote early which only took 10 minutes.

      3. I might change my mind if I had to deal with long lines. I go in, and I am out again in less than ten minutes. I go mid-morning so I usually miss early-birds and late-comers.

      1. They think its a protest, except you cant complain if you haven’t voted.

        The other thing that annoys me is people who do a protest vote, people often think there vote doesn’t count and is some ways it doesn’t I live in an area which is all Conservative (right winged) I am fairly sure my left winged vote is not going to make a massive difference at all, but there is no reason for me to vote right when I think there policies are wrong. If nothing else Brexit should of taught everyone that every vote counted. 52/48 split is so close and some of that is because A. People didn’t know what they were voting for and B. They wanted to protest the control the EU has over us.

  1. Yes, I vote in local elections for the school board and local leaders, for one’s serving on the State level and also in the elections for the US Congress and President.

      1. I’m not sure if it should be law however the right to vote should be respected. So many others before us fought hard to earn the right we often take for grated

      1. I believe because most people don’t realize their vote can be the deciding factor for an issue they are passionate about. I had friends who were catholic who didn’t vote because they didn’t like Hilary or Donald trump. It was easier not to vote. Even though they didn’t agree with DT’s character he was against abortion so rather than stand up they stayed home.

      1. Voting is the most basic right of an Indian citizen. That is one of the only things that connects all of us as an Indian regardless of the diversity of our religions, regions, languages, educational qualifications, proffessions and gender. Every person above 18 years of age is empowered to elect their own government. Unlike US, we vote for Members of lower house of Parliament and the majority party’s leader becomes the Prime Minister of the country. That’s a difference. Because Prime Minister enjoys most power in the country. Universal Adult Suffrage is what makes India is the largest democracy of the world. And since 1952, periodic elections have been conducted in the country (except once when emergency was declared in state during PM Indira Gandhi’s govt.)
