No, because I'm from another country. But if I could, I would.

I did not vote today. I mean, I'm not of age to vote, anyway, so.. Not like I could have.. :-(

I would have voted for sure, though, if I was 18.

I didn't vote. Never did, never will be.

I'm not even a registered voter, & unless they make online ballots, that'll be unlikely to change.

No, I didn't vote because I'm Australian . If I were American, I would have though!

This topic is kind of exclusive to American people over the age of 18 (is voting age 18 or 21? idk), so since it's not inclusive of all people, normally I'd lock it. But since this is kind of a huge one-in-four-years topical deal, I'm gonna let it slide just this once. Carry on people!

I would've voted but I didn't because (@ Andy) I'm not 18. :P

Even though the lines are crazy, I would have tried to. But at least they aren't as crazy where I live as they are in Florida!!!

So from this day on... topics of Australia day or Boxing day are not allowed!

No, I haven't voted because I didn't register, but I'll vote next time.

I voted early this morning, around 7:30 am in Washington D.C. It was my first time and I was very excited.

Yep! And I was too excited, because this would be the first time I voted in a PRESIDENTIAL election. Four years ago I couldn't vote because I was two weeks shy of turning 18.

I voted first thing in the morning when the polls opened.

Yes. Went this morning just to get it over with.

So glad this is going to be over. I'm sick of all the slime. Hopefully the Divided States of America can press on!

I voted for the first time ever today. I took care of that before Noon and got myself a pizza to celebrate. I'm currently watching the election coverage on CNN right now.

Yup. Went and voted at the last minute. My mom was going to vote as well but I brought her purse in moments before we left and didn't notice it. I feel really bad since it was going to be the first time she would have voted but ... there is always next time. Shame though; if she voted she would have voted for the same person as me. Yay for being in a family with similar views.

First off, I'm too young to vote. Second, I'm not engrossed enough in politics nor do I know enough about it to be comfortable voting for anybody. I'm not going to vote for somebody if I'm not absolutely sure I want to vote for the person in question. Every vote does count...

Yeah I'd have voted for Obama if I was American (why is nobody saying who??? WHY IS THIS NOT ALLOWED AM I BREAKING SOME SECRET LAW?) idk why people are so private about candidates, because it's just a person you support and you shouldn't be ashamed of your views but NEVERMIND THAT IS ANOTHER ISSUE idk it drives me crazy when people IRL avoid it like the plague. What's wrong with friendly debate, crazies. :(

Nevertheless, yeah, if I was American I'd have chosen Obama, but sadly I'm Australian and can't vote from here. :( ALSO I THINK EVERY LITTLE VOTE WOULD'VE MATTERED!!! Much like the Big Brother voting where everyone should vote for Estelle. :3

No. It wouldn't have mattered for presidential. I live in Kansas. I probably would've voted for Obama but all the votes would've gone to Romney. I don't have an opinion of him so whatever. If he wins he wins I guess. If Obama wins he wins I guess. As you can tell, when it comes to presidency, I am rather apathetic.

I didn't vote because I didn't know who was running for senate/house/other stuff in my area. Thus, I didn't want to keep spaces blank or vote when I was uninformed. Hopefully next time I will actually remember to look people up before election so I vote.

Also I forgot to verify my address ages ago? I'm registered but I didn't verify the address so I don't know if I would've had issues voting today or not. Also the voting wasn't within walking distance from me. But mostly it was because being uninformed.

Yes. My line was about a 2 minute wait. This was my first year voting for the next President (plus all those funny people and funny amendments). I'm glad it's all over soon enough.

I would feel better if the poll had a 'can't vote' option. I get a little worried if that many people didn't vote but were able to. :p

Like Nica, I'm also Australian so I couldn't vote.

But if I were an American I would have voted Obama.

Most people don't like revealing who they voted for, and others are obnoxious about it haha. I assume the former is because you live in a state or in a family with opposing views to yours and you want to keep it secret and not get slammed for it. Better to not even mention if you didn't vote either, cause you get rude remarks for that too.

I myself didn't vote. I am not informed enough on the candidates nor am I registered to vote. I feel like I should have a right to not vote as much as I have the right to vote. And I also feel like it would be a slap in the face to those that are engrossed in this stuff and know why they want to vote for whoever and then I just go vote without really understanding anything. Maybe next time, America.

But if I didddddddd obama because let's see where he takes us. it'll be fun.
