on a specific day, people go to designated areas and cast ballots for their choice of candidates; in other words, "voters" pretend they have a choice in who will do what; "candidates" pretend they act on their own, and instead follow agendas dictated by the ruling elite; this is not cynicism or defeatism, and it is not the polyannish, sugary sweet view either; it is, instead, the way it is; also, a person has the right to vote, or not to vote, and it is not up to the approval or disapproval of another; this word, vote, should not be on the urban dictionary, because it is too politicized, and too much of a page for rants and raves, especially, stupid, racist, low-consciousness ones
I am going to vote, because I like to pretend that by going throught the motions, I have somehow expressed a choice.

1.) What many citizens forgot they didn't do when complaining about the government.

2.) Although everyone is granted the right to an opinion, this is the only place where it really matters (or anybody will care).
Non-voter: I hate Barack Obama. And people don't deserve health care because they waste their money on Ugg Boots and Coach bags.

Voter: Oh, so you voted for McCain?

Non-Voter: No I didn't vote.

Voter: Oh, so STFU then. No one cares what you think.

A privilege given to a citizen to make a fool of himself and a wreck of his country.
Guy A: Who are you voting for?

Guy B: I am going to vote for McCain for '09.

(Refferring to US "voting".

Contrary to popular belief among young people who do not vote, you do NOT elect the president directly.

You actually choose people to vote, called electors. These electors promise that if they are elected, they will vote for either candidate. However, they do not have to hold to this, and last minute bribes can be done.

Sound unfair?
The world won't change if we don't stand up for our rights as a people, and choose the right decision for the community.

Barbara Boxer of California is currently trying to stop this.

(Voting, when not reffering to the above, basically means submitting any type of entry to choose something. Although it represents whatever is good for a group (what the group wants, not what it needs), it most likely ends up being a bad idea.)
In class we voted for what songs we wanted to play at the dance, but since our class was primarily immature sluts, they played a combination of annoying pop/rap.

You know, we could have done a lot better than the ape in the chair who enjoys pressing the big red button set up in front of him. Something tells me that what John Timor* told us is going to be true...

A guy who claimed to be from the future on some stupid forum, and whom I doubt. What he had to say would be pretty good for a scifi novel, even if it was most likely fake. (Johntimor.com)

Something black people should not do to rise up and overcome.
"Get out and vote?"

"...I'm sorry that is incorrect..."

Something I will never do because it is ageist, even when I turn 18.
Person 1: You gonna vote tomorrow?
Person 2: No, I'm not a citizen of the USA, I can't vote.
Person 1: Yes you are, you were born here!
Person: 2: No, in the USA your not a citizen till your 18.
