meh. the "vote or else" rhetoric gets tiresome, unless you live in a swing state / swing district. i still vote in my hometown (Morgan Hill - 20 miles south of silicon valley) (by absentee) despite not having lived there in a quite a while. it's been gerrymandered into a strongly conservative district, even though the population is fairly moderate. either way my vote won't make much of a difference (what i want will pass in SF because my views are similar to the majority that live there and thus my single vote doesn't make a difference, and what i want will almost never pass in MH because of gerrymandering, so how i vote won't make much of a difference [unless you get off on "protest-voting" like my pops]).

i still do it cause i like the sticker.

and civic duty. and so on and so forth.
