Sean "Puffy" Combs, gangster rapper and youth role model, says that we should "vote or die."
I just say you should vote because you are an American.
How is Daniel voting? The following are the bubbles I filled in on my ballot. All my votes are informed votes, I have done research on every candidate for every position. In some cases I spoke directly to candidates and some I relied on interest group ratings and voting records.
Feel free to leave your own endorsements in the comments, even you Democrats. Also feel free to ask me why I voted the way I did, I can think of one or two that people might question. If you know me then shoot me an email or a phone call.
