RAV, yes you can vote a blank ballot but the tabulator will kick it out, if you want to do a blank ballot just mark the oval in write-in and don't write a name in , the ballot will be counted but no votes will be counted. Otherwise you must put you blank ballot in the auxillary bin and this is hand counted at the end of the night by the moderators. best to be counted by the tabulator.

Very good wilson, you're 100% right that a blank ballot will be rejected by the tabulator. Thanks for coming up with the way to make the point that RAV wanted to make. I might suggest writing in "none of the above" to really prove the point.

This is a free country and people have the right not to vote. "If you don't vote, you have no right to complain about the state of our union." Freedom of speech I can complain about anything I want to, Voted or not.

C.J. Boa- Yes, you are correct. Thanks to our founding fathers and men and women who have died fighting for that freedom, you can complain about anything you want. The question is...Why do you choose to complain about something you make no attempt (by voting) to change? That makes no sense to me.

Becouse you think all the people running for that position are not worth voting for (the two party system no longer works). I belive that my vote should go for someone worth voting for and not wasted just to say I voted today. I do vote at all town elections (if not to just vote for myself) and most of the federal. But don't guilt me into voting becouse people died for that right.
