If Gary Johnson is not on the ballot, here is my family:

Mom: Barack Obama
Dad: Mitt Romney
Me: Undecided

IF he is,

Mom: Barack Obama
Dad: Gary Johnson
Me: Gary Johnson

He will, but he'll be Gary Johnson (Americans Elect), not Gary Johnson (Libertarian).

Me: Undecided, leaning Jill Stein
Father: Barack Obama
Brother: G. Johnson/J. Stein, if he votes (he doesn't actually care, he just enjoys voting not Dem/Rep)
Mother: Doesn't vote, would be centre-right Independent/Rep if she followed politics.
Grandfather: Barack Obama
Uncle: Doesn't vote, would vote Mitt Romney or Gary Johnson (Economic conservative).

(No color disrespect to Johnson, the yellow was just really illegible and painful to the eyes)

Does your family know about voting?

What is your opinion of this thread?

Watch Dave being briefed by the mods.

Being a moderator is basically like one giant party.  Except you're the one ruining the party and everyone hates you.

Our Forum Community is....a special community. lol

As to the actual answer (not that you were looking for it), almost all of my family members who don't vote are conservatives so....I never discourage anyone voting, but I don't go knocking on their door twice on election day. Wink

My wife, on the other hand, although neither a registered voter nor a US citizen, is very sympathetic to the communist party, and generally is greatful to the communist party of the PRC for putting her family in a position that one day would enable her to study in the USA and find a nice job in the USA.  So my son will have one parent who is a Republican, more or less, and one parent who is a communist, more or less.

Just because she's sympathetic to the CPC or what they're doing over there currently, it doesn't mean she's a communist. The 'Communist' part has become name-only. I know a lot of Chinese who are sympathetic to the party, but their 'American' ideology would best be described as 'indifferent' or cynical of all sides.

So what happened was...

Dad: Obama
Mom: Obama
Sister: Obama

Dad was the only one who didn't vote straight-ticket Democrat; he voted D for everything except Congress, where he voted for some random independent.

Mom regrets voting for Romney, Dad voted for a friend, and my brother voted for Obama.

Oh, you know, just his pal Barack. He makes a habit of making agreements with friends or neighbors to vote for each other for President, which I actually quite like the idea of.

Paternal Grandfather: Unknown
Paternal Grandmother: Romney (McCain)
Father: Not voting (Didn't vote)
Stepmother: Not voting (Didn't vote)
Half-sister: Too young
Half-sister: Too young

Maternal Grandfather: Obama (Obama)
Maternal Grandmother: Not voting (Didn't vote)
Mother: Stein (Nader)
Stepfather: Johnson (Barr)
Stepsister: Romney (McCain)
Stepbrother: Obama (McCain)
Me: Obama (Too young)
Stepbrother: Too young
Brother: Too young

Ex-Girlfriend: Obama (Too young)
Current Girlfriend: Obama (Obama)

Updated this. My parents essentially voted Green and Libertarian as protest votes, not out of any real desire towards Stein or Johnson. They just don't like Obama and like Romney even less.
