guess I hold the record so far as the one who has voted the most. 15 times

1960;lost
1964:lost
1968:Won
1972: won
1976: lost
1980: won
1984: won
1988: won
1992: lost
1996: lost
2000: won
2004: won
2008:lost:
2012:lost
2016:won

I guess there is no secret how I vote for President, but I can add, at the state level and on occasion the federal level I have crossed party lines.

sorry, I have to disagree with you on Perot. We lived in Texas at the time; hubby also had a contract wiht Perot's company. I happen to feel he would not have been a good choice. Loyal American, yes, good president no. but that is just an opinion.

5 so far, starting in 1996 when I was first eligible, skipping 2004 due to moving states just before the election day and not registering promptly. I've never voted in a true swing state so the recent purple trend in Georgia is interesting ... maybe we will start getting more attention in future elections.

My first vote in a presidential election was in 1960 but I didn't vote for Kennedy. Kennedy won by only about 100K votes..34.2 million to 34.1 million. If I had to do again, my vote would have been the same.

Who picks and chooses which elections to vote in and which ones to sit out?



I've voted in every election since I have been eligible to vote. And I vote in every LOCAL election as well. I don't sit out the process like all the "patriots" out there.

I have voted in 9 and am 4-4 with a bye in 2016 since I could not bring myself to vote for Trump, but I knew he would win my state anyway. If I were in NC I would have voted for him. Does that count? LOL. If so then I am 5-4.

Losses were Clinton and Obama.

Two. I voted for Mitt Romney in 2012 and Donald Trump in 2016. So 1-1 right now.
