I didn't for one of the few times ever. There were just no contested races that I had any real preference.

My personal preference is leaning toward voting with my feet and leaving this screwed up state. Unfortunately I probably cannot do that for about another decade without it being a big and costly pain.

I walked up to get my ballot and was asked which party? I asked what my options were and was told Republican, Dimocrat, Green or Non-partisan. I thought what the hell and chose non-partisan. They go dig a stack of unopened ballots out of a box and hand me one. There was not one name to vote for on it and only one ballot issue for me to vote on so basically I guess I voted for NONE OF THE ABOVE. :grooving:

Voted early, a habit from my travelling days. I was first eligible to vote in 1968, voted that year absentee due to having a McNamara scholarship. I may have missed a Primary or two since that time (if there was no competition or no one I was for or against), but have never failed to vote in a General Election. I've never been able to understand those that say "It doesn't make any difference. My vote doesn't count." The previous Republican gubernatorial race was decided by less than 200 votes. And in 1982, Jim Thompson defeated Adali Stevenson III for governor by less than one vote per precinct.
I can't help but wonder how many stayed home this year, thinking that rauner had an insurmountable lead, but it turned out the polls were wrong. And let's not forget the biggest poll blunder of all, with several newspapers already having headlines printed saying DEWEY defeats TRUMAN for the 1948 Presidential Election.
