    I voted. Now I'm going to wait patiently and stay off of all social media and news sites until tomorrow.

        I'm waiting to hear the downsides?

          Widdershawns was sending mixed signals, because yes it was stated that you should be informed in the votes you are making, but it was also stated that anyone capable of voting should do so "period." I wasn't assuming they meant to send mixed signals. I was sharing my opinion that people shouldn't vote if they are just picking a name at random, or worse because the person is on the same 'team' so there is the flawed logic that they think the same thing about most issues as the person voting, which there is no guarantee of.

              I'm not so sure.

              I've met dozens of people that have cast a vote in the past while knowing absolutely nothing about what or who they were voting for. I've even met a few that insist that a person should vote in exactly that way, claiming that it is better to have voted than to have not even if you are literally flipping a coin to make your choices, which is absolute nonsense.

              So if there is some potentially informed group that aren't necessarily going to vote for you to tell "Do it. Vote" and have that be worth having said, why is it so hard to believe that there is some group of uninformed people that might be persuaded to vote anyway unless someone says not to muddy the pool because it's important that the result of a vote actually match what the populace wants as closely as it can?

                If you are talking to me, I did read all of the initial post before commenting. It's kind of rude to imply I didn't, rather than assume that I did and simply took a different meaning to the post than you did or was intended.

                I also wasn't commenting on what I think was said - just sharing my opinion on voting practices, and how one shouldn't let the idea of "civic duty" over-power the common sense that one shouldn't be involved in making important decisions if one is clueless on the matters at hand.

                  I voted today. For who? For your Mom.
                  That's right. Your mom.
                  I voted for her.
                  Why? Because I could.
                  Why didn't YOU vote for her??
                  She's your mother! Don't you trust her?
                  I trust your Mom.
                  That's why I voted.
                  For your Mom.

                      I was talking to Charlaquin, but their comment was directed at you so take it for what you will.

                          I was concurring with your initial statement. Drake's phrasing in the post you quoted implied that Widdershawns had failed to specifically mention being informed before casting a vote. Since other people had posted between your post and my reply it lost narrative coherence. I wasn't actually picking on Drake, my statement was generalized for a reason.

                            Gotcha. That makes sense.
