For the Presidency, and any state elections (or local, even), feel free to share who you're voting for on Tuesday, or who you've submitted early voting for, or who you would vote for if you're ineligible, or if you were forced to with a gun to your head.

Sounds like a scheme to find out where people live!

Lol.

On a serious note, everything local is optional - but I encourage everyone to partake in some regard.

President: Undecided: but mostly leaning Clinton, slightly possibly Gary Johnson (would be if not for his share of insane policies, but things like his fake heart attack at hearing a falsehood on marijuana causing an increase in cardiac arrest risk in short-term after use are things that make me love him as an eccentric refresher sometimes), and I would really love to reduce our military budget - because I think that would stay down after he leaves office while taxes would go back up and cut aid would return. Would be a booth-time decision. 100% prefer Clinton over Trump, though I was open to Trump pre-circa VP choice, and may have been even leaning towards him before he went fully insane (and obviously before some...revelations on his past) in regards to policy and his speeches.

Representative: Josh Gottheimer (D), former Clinton speechwriter and moderate fiscal, progressive social Democrat. Challenging incumbent and contender for worst elected federal official in the nation and most insane House member, New Jersey's embodiment of what the Family Research Council would be if a person - Scott Garrett.

Local:

No opinion, because my local government is corrupt and absolutely no information about my local election candidates ever seems to be public.

If I could vote: Sir Walter Raleigh

Also, the only local person I know of is Deb Ross, who's apparently some kind of nazi because she "thinks burning the American flag is right, but refused to help a veteran fly one". It's about 90% of the ads I get on this site nowadays

I'm currently living in England, but I came from Alabama. It would be a waste of my time to vote in the presidential election given that Alabama isn't even close to a swing state, especially given that I'd have to cast an absentee ballot. The entire state government is corrupt, and I don't care about local elections at all.
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.

I'd prefer president Clinton over senator Ross

I voted Democrat all the way down the ballot, except for sheriff (which was uncontested). I also discovered the costs of overnight shipping, which is something I will never, ever do again. I expected it to be expensive. I did not expect it to cost $40.

Honestly I can't tell if you're joking or being serious.

(You'd be amazed how many times people IRL seriously, and without reservation tell me I should run for office. I'm never going to, though.)

You should, at the very least, vote for the Democratic options in the senate in addition to voting for Hillary for president.

In all honesty, I don't know squat about anyone who's running for senator, with the exception of David Duke, lol.

Doesn't really matter. If you want the Republican party to ever return to a respectable state, they have to lose this election across the board.

Seeing Trump lose will suffice. I don't see the GOP as a whole as being particularly unrespectable or radical.
