California voters: are you casting your vote in the primary on June 5th?

Asked by Jeruba (55847points) June 3rd, 2018

Every election is important this year. Our votes for governor and members of Congress (House and Senate) are especially so. Will you be going to the polls?

Yep. I vote at every election.

Yes, I will be.

Actually, I’ll be going 3 times: I’m going to be a pollworker, and I’ll be going to my home precinct to vote on my lunch break.

Absolutely. It is a bit inconvenient this year but not so much that I’d miss it.

My state has its primary on June 12th and, yes, I’ll be voting. I vote in every election.

I have never missed voting in an election since I was old enough to vote.

We have voted by mail for the last 30 years.

Voting is one way we can make a difference. If you don’t vote, you have no influence on what happens. Zero.

You might not like the candidates, or propositions, but sometimes voting against something worse, is still better than not voting at all. We don’t have a perfect system, but if you don’t vote, you are part of the problems that you don’t like.

“Protest” votes, or not voting, is the same as voting for the side you don’t like. It’s just that people who you don’t respect are the ones who end up making the decisions that we all have to live by (or endure) depending on your perspective.
