Being forced to vote by mail, I spent a lot of time today researching, voting; by filling in the bubble with a black pen, then checking my vote to make sure of my decision.
Here is how I voted: support for My party line, voted for women, voted for Latinas, voted for the candidate whose political philosophy was in line with mine, voted for the less of two evils so that I would not waste a vote, voted for the one my neighbor suggested and voted for a candidate I had met previously while networking. Voting takes time to study the measures, read about the bonds that will bind us forever and looking for the candidates profile online. When we lived in Mexico City as an expat, I was able to fax my ballot to the registrar's office.
So glad to be a registered voter and still believe in democracy.
