I vote, from presidential USA to Presidential HOA and in between; but I have missed deadlines when busy. I agree with John McCormack no vote; no complaints.

To many feel that most elections are predetermined or they are lackadaisical so they do not. Yes I always vote and as in the last two major ones not for the winner!

I don't...

I think if I was more involved with the organization, that I might vote. The turnout in our board is also very low.

You bet I vote. We generally get about 35% participation in our election.

Yes, I always vote and since we can do it on-line, it's easy and quick to do. No excuses, as far as I'm concerned, Debbie.

I have voted before, but not every year for associations. As far as the big elections I can't vote, not a US citizen.

In my experience, most are apathetic about it.  They don't vote and they don't attend events.  Yes, I voted and was part of leadership for many years.

The burden is on those running for office to get people out to vote.  We just had our election and our local candidates let us know how much they wanted and need our support.  They won because they let us know to vote.  There should be a reason to vote and it helps to know who and why, don't you think?

Debbie, I've noticed that here as well.  Personally, I vote whenever I get the opportunity.

I use my right to vote whether it is political or organizations that I am member of.  If you don't vote, you don't get the right to complain if things don't run the way you want them to!

I am on the ballot this year as President Elect. I am unopposed but some of the other positions have strong contenders. I am wondering how many will vote.
