Not sure of details, but I remember voting for Rosanne in either '08 or '12.

Five. I was first eligible in 1996, but was too young and confident of a Clinton re-election to bother to vote. I've voted in every presidential election since 2000. My first vote was in 1994, in a very important California state election that year (props 184, 186 and 187 were all that year...CA voters should remember it well).

I voted for George McGovern in 1972 when I was 24. I could not vote in the previous Presidential election because I turned 21 at the end the the year.

To all you Republicans calling for increasing the age to vote, think about what I just posted. I voted for Hillary when I was 68 years old.

What you REALLY want is to take away the vote from Democrats, whatever their age. We get it.

I just disliked Obama more. I have no use for the Far Right or the Far Left. Both extremes are intolerant and hate-filled.

Starting with Obama's win in 2008, I was quickly disillusioned when instead of being the POTUS for all of us, it became identity politics all day every day. Identity politics that excluded me. The Dems continued that through his 8 years and ratcheted it up a notch with Hillary. Despite her loss, it continues to be identity politics for the Dems with illegals, even criminal illegals, being the premier group in their priority pecking order. If they continue supporting open borders, even without saying the actual words, this Moderate will vote Republican in 2018 and 2020.
I'm sensing cognitive dissonance here. You are embracing the extreme right. Don't kid yourself.

Please explain. Your comment seems totally nonsensical.

I've voted in ten presidential elections & every election on every level - local, state, federal. I've never been registered with a party and vote across party lines. Used to be I voted for the person not the party. Now I vote issue as both sides have very little to like.
