Somewhere around two percent of voters are ostensibly still undecided about who they’ll be voting for in the Presidential election. These people are often ridiculed, because it’s easy to make fun of a small minority, but many voters (including myself) are balancing competing interests and also…
I disagree with his conclusions, but I appreciate the example of John Green here in going through his reasons for voting for a particular candidate and really taking it seriously. But I’d like to remind everyone that third parties are a thing, that the opposition debate is being aired tomorrow night, and that (although votehelp.org is well-intentioned) sources like isidewith.com take a less binarist and more helpful approach to voting.
Thanks for reminding us of tonight’s third-party debate, Catherine! The debate, which takes place at 9:00 Eastern, is the first of two debates being sponsored by Free and Equal Elections, and featuring the Green Party’s Jill Stein, the Libertarian Party’s Gary Johnson, the Constitution Party’s Virgil Goode, and the Justice Party’s Rocky Anderson.
You can watch it on AJE or C-SPAN, as well as the website of Free and Equal Elections. Larry King will be moderating. LARRY KING.
As always, we’ll be live-tweeting the debate using #banter2012. Things got pretty wild last night, so we’d tune in if we were you!
