My question is two fold,
1. Did you vote today or are you going too?
2. I have voted for Republican, Democrat and different 3rd party members. Do you lean towards one Democrats or Republicans. What is your biggest issue?
This is just a friendly question, that it would be a good topic for today.
I'm a die hard republican and "tend" to vote with the party. There are a few issues that I differ with the party on and in those cases, I vote for what I believe in.
Nov 7, '06Joined: Nov '06; Posts: 20I voted for sure! My first BS degree is in Political Science, so you know I love this stuff! :spin: I voted for all three parties in different areas. I voted Libertarian in a few local races. I am just thankful that I saw more people my age in the polling place!

State Senator....Republican. I vote for the candidate...not the party. That would shock Timothy to no end if he read it!!!

We voted together. I am also in MI with Jen and agree this is a scary day since we are choosing a govenor and senator. I voted a mix of democrat and republican. We had some proposals too. I had a mix of yes and no votes. I just hope that the next govenor can turn Michigan's economy around.

Now that the Dems have taken over the house we will see if they are all talk or action.

I'm a little late getting to this thread; However
Both DH & I voted last week; We have early voting here in Illinois; It's really helpful as there is NO EXCUSE now for not having the time--plus the polling places are VERY convenient.
I'm most a Democrat, but vote across lines & go for whomever I think is best; DH is mostly republican!!! He will also cross Party Lines, tho!!
We seldom agree on any candidates or issues, tho; We have LIVELY discussions!! We've been having these "LIVELY" discussions for 33 yrs + the 5 years we dated!! Interesting!!
We both feel that Voting is our greatest Privelidge!!

Joined: Jun '06; Posts: 130I voted after I got out of class yesterday, voted mostly Dem, a few Rep, and a few Ind, most I had to leave blank though because I didn't know enough about the people or their views--no blind voting for me! It looks like only one of my choices stayed in office so that means I can gripe about the rest!!! Thanks to all that did vote.
