ginny_t: The world's tiniest violin? It refuses to play for you because it has higher standards. (unsympathetic)
I don't know why, but the "go vote!" exhortations on election day really get under my skin. Don't get me wrong: I dragged my sorry, whiny, feverish ass outta my sickbed to go vote (whyohwhy didn't I use the advance polls?), and I even think that voting should be mandatory (a co-worder disagrees but proposed some sort of bonus [like a tax break or something] to voting—oh HELLZ no!). But "go vote!" gets under my skin almost as much as "ZOMG vote splitting!" does. I just can't explain it.

All that said, if I know you didn't vote, and you try to complain about something the government does, I will shut you down hard. (Spoiling your ballot? That totally counts in my book. I even know someone who ate his. Ooooh-kay. Whatever floats your boat, but maybe a little sauce at least?)

So I guess the takeways are don't tell someone to vote in my presence, don't go on about vote splitting around me, and don't tell me you didn't vote.

Contrary much? *shrug*
