Myself (I'm pretty young, b. 1989):
I've been a solid Democrat through my short life, but I've considered voting for the Green Party on some occasions. It hasn't happened yet. Growing up during Bush II, I have made a rule for myself to never vote Republican, and I've kept that promise. The only time I voted other than Democratic was for a Green-like Independent in this year's primary for Lieutenant Governor (I don't like Brad Owen). I've worked at bookstores and done volunteer work, I hope to add more to my resume in the coming years. Someday I might want to become a history teacher.

2004 - Not old enough to vote, would have voted Kerry (D)
2008 - Obama (D) (first election I voted in, voted for Obama in caucus and general)
2012 - Going to vote for Obama (D)

Mother (b. 1952)
My mom's been a solid Democrat all her life. She's worked at Boeing (in the 70s) and as a recess supervisor for public schools (later in life). Exceptions: Both of my parents voted Republican for Daniel J. Evans for Governor in the 1970s, he was a respected and popular moderate. Some today would regard Evans as a RINO. The only other time was when my dad voted for Rob McKenna (R) for Attorney General over Deborah Senn (D) in 2004, he didn't like Senn for some reason. He's voting for Inslee (D) against McKenna (R) in the Governor's race this year. My parents seemed to initially support Hillary Clinton (D) for the 2008 Democratic nomination, but eventually became Obama supporters over the course of the primaries.

1968 - Not old enough to vote, would have voted Humphrey (D)
1972 - McGovern (D)
1976 - Carter (D)
1980 - Carter (D)
1984 - Mondale (D)
1988 - Dukakis (D)
1992 - Clinton (D)
1996 - Clinton (D)
2000 - Gore (D)
2004 - Kerry (D)
2008 - Obama (D)
2012 - Going to vote for Obama (D)

Father (b. 1955)
My dad's been a solid Democrat, but voted Anderson in 1980 as he was disappointed with Carter and disliked Reagan. Dad's worked as a truck driver and as a manager at hardware stores. He said in hindsight, he might have voted for Carter in 1980.

1972 - Not old enough to vote, would have voted McGovern (D)
1976 - Carter (D)
1980 - Anderson (I)
1984 - Mondale (D)
1988 - Dukakis (D)
1992 - Clinton (D)
1996 - Clinton (D)
2000 - Gore (D)
2004 - Kerry (D)
2008 - Obama (D)
2012 - Going to vote for Obama (D)

Sister (b. 1983)
My sister is a solid Democrat, and works as a teacher.

2000 - Not old enough to vote, would have voted Gore (D)
2004 - Kerry (D)
2008 - Obama (D)
2012 - Going to vote for Obama (D)

Oldest Uncle (b. 1942) (father's side)
All of my uncles and aunts lean Democratic (though not enthusiastically), except this one. This uncle was a hippy-ish independent during Vietnam and the 70s (though he alluded to reluctantly voting for Nixon over Humphrey), disliked Reagan, voted for Perot twice, voted for Bush twice and became a die-hard Republican after 9/11. His political opinions have also been influenced, unfortunately, by talk radio host Rush Limbaugh. His least favorite president is Lyndon B. Johnson, and his favorite president is Theodore Roosevelt. My uncle has worked as a photographer and done various other work.

1956 - Maybe Eisenhower (R)?
1960 - Maybe Kennedy (D)?
1964 - ?
1968 - Nixon (R)
1972 - ?
1976 - ?
1980 - Anderson (I) I assume
1984 - ?
1988 - ?
1992 - Perot (I)
1996 - Perot (RF)
2000 - Bush (R)
2004 - Bush (R)
2008 - McCain (R) (his primary choice was Fred Thompson (R))
2012 - Going to vote for Romney (R) (indicated some support for Gingrich and Cain, disdain for Paul and Bachmann)

Grandfather (1909-1998) (father's side)
Grandpa was a machinist during WWII, and kept the profession most of his life. All I really know about my grandfather politically is that he liked Nixon because Nixon was brought up in a working class family. The night Nixon resigned, my father remembers grandpa coming home drunk, shaking his fist at the ceiling, yelling, "Come back Nixon, come back!" I'm told grandpa was an FDR Democrat in the 30s and 40s and probably became an Eisenhower Republican in the 50s. I don't know if he liked Reagan, but they had the same birthday, grandpa was two years to the day older. In his old age, grandpa didn't seem particularly interested in politics, but may have voted for Dole (R) in 1996. Though I am politically at odds with him, this grandfather was my favorite relative as a young child.

Grandmother (b. 1917) (father's side)
My grandmother, a housewife most of her life, has voted Democratic all her life, though she grew disappointed in the party during Clinton. Now she feels appalled at the Republicans and wants Obama to win a second term.

Grandfather (1926-2008) (mother's side)
Grandpa on my mother's side was a lifelong Republican, though he may have voted for George Wallace in 1968 and Strom Thurmond in 1948, and maybe Stevenson in 1952 due to John Sparkman being on the ticket. He criticized Bush Jr. for the execution of the Iraq War though he voted for him twice. He died in August 2008, but almost certainly would have voted for McCain. He had been a judge in Alabama and worked on the space program in the 1960s. On a visit to Alabama in 2006, he criticized me for having such long hair (it's now shorter due to haircuts and the beginnings of the effects of the dreaded male balding gene).

Grandmother (1929-1999) (mother's side)
As far as I know, my grandmother on my mother's side was a Republican. She grew up poor (as she was born at the beginning of the Great Depression) but married wealthy, and I'm not sure if she did anything for work. They married in the 1950s and divorced in the 1960s, though grandma still remained financially better off than in her youth. I remember my mom recounting an argument with grandma in the 1980s, where grandma said she was against Democrats because she didn't believe in universal health care.

Oh yes, I suppose there are family members despite my parents.

My paternal grandfather was (and is I suppose) a life-long Communist, of the left-communist orientation, so explicitly anti-revisionist and extremely anti-Moscow, anti-USSR.

My maternal grandfather was more an "establishment-moderate" type Communist, but he died a long long time ago, so there's not too much information.

My brother used to be a hardcore Democrat (straight-ticket) until he started working in the healthcare industry and Obamacare landed. Now he is a very solid Republican.

Didn't really pay attention much until 2004. I supported Kerry heavily because I was very unhappy with Bush's foreign policy. In 2008, I supported Hillary and then very reluctantly Obama (McCain/Palin was not a winning economic team). In 2012, I'm more excited about Romney than perhaps any presidential candidate in American history.

Straight Republican for my mother (1976-present) and maternal grandparents (1956-present). No idea how/if my aunt voted (1972?-2000?). I would guess that my maternal grandmother's mother (1948-1976) and father (1948-1996) voted similarly.

Straight Democrat from 1960-1968 and straight Republican from 1972 on for paternal grandmother (1960-2000) and grandfather (1960-1984).

Reagan in 1980, straight Libertarian from 1984-2004, straight Republican from 2008-present for my father. I would assume similar voting patterns for my uncle (1972-present).

I would guess that my great-grandparents voted Labour, with the exception of my maternal grandmother's parents who probably voted Conservative.

My brother voted for Kerry in 04, Obama in 08 but didn't vote this time.  He has become more conservative recently but he is appalled by how pro-war and xenophobic both parties are.  He still considers himself a Democrat though. 

My mother never votes.  My uncle who passed away recently would always vote for the Democrats because they're good for business as the economy prospers under democratic administrations.  He would also say that Republicans are crooks

Mom (1984-Present): All republican, except Perot in 1992.
Dad (1984-Present): All republican
Grandma (1948-Present)(Mom): All republican
Grandpa (1948-Present)(Mom): All republican
Grandma (1960-2008)(Dad): All republican
Grandpa (1960-Present)(Dad): All republican
Sister: Hasn't voted

That's all I can tell you for sure. Exciting, I know! I do have many other family members (mostly cousins and uncles/aunts) who are liberals, so my family doesn't have this tradition of republican voting or anything. Unfortunately I don't have voting info from anybody else, so I can't fill anybody else in, otherwise I would.

Mother: I think she was apathetic for awhile, she told me that the first political race she was interested in was the 1990 NC Senate race between Jesse Helms and Harvey Gantt.  I don't think she's ever voted Republican, and has been voting in Presidential elections since the 1990s.

Father:  I know he voted Democrat 2000-2012; before that, I don't know.

Grandmother (maternal): Voting since 1956, only voted Republican in 1972.  May have voted for Wallace in '68, I don't know.  She voted Democrat in every other election.

Grandmother (paternal): Only Republican she voted for was Eisenhower; Democrat in every election since then, I think.

Grandfather (paternal): I don't know.  He may have voted for a Dem back in the '60s but he has been very conservative at least since the '70s.  He has voted straight Republican since then.

Father:

2004- Bush (a vote which he regrets)
2008- Obama (a vote which he also now regrets lol)
2012- Stein (write-in), and voted for Kerrey in the Senate race

Mother:

2008- Obama


My parents, who are immigrants from Guatemala, received their citizenship in 2002. My father is considerably more politically involved than my mother, whose political tendencies tend to be a mesh of apathy, cynicism, and anger towards the corporate establishment. My father voted for Bush in 2004 purely on his immigration stance. Nowadays, my father subscribes to a sort of left-wing socially-conservative populism and is currently disillusioned with both Obama and the Republicans.

I have no idea what some of other family members living here in America have voted for. But I assume that one of my cousins (your run-of-the-mill liberal), voted for Obama in 2008 and 2012.

The Obamas and Joe Biden visit the state in a highly publicized campaign event for Landrieu. Barack proudly declares Mary Landrieu to be a vital ally, reminding the audience that Obamacare wouldn't have passed without her vote, and Michelle accidentally calls her "Molly Langrove". Biden makes an offensive gaffe about Cajuns.

How do you all know how aunts and uncles voted? I have no clue how any of my aunts and uncles voted. We were always brought up to never discuss politics during family dinners.

(Edited after research)
My Parents, Canadians, have been ex-Pats since the 1980s, and have more or less refused to share their voting history. They have not voted since 1988

My Father, a Liberal leaning NDPer in his youth
1986: Out of Country, there after
1984 Fed: NDP, Ed Broadbent
1983 BC: BC NDP, Dave Barrett
1980 Fed: Liberal, Pierre Trudeau
1979 Fed: NDP, Ed Broadbent, Dave Barrett
1975 BC:BC NDP, Dave Barrett
1974 Fed: Liberal, Pierre Trudeau

My Mother, a Liberal from a Liberal family
1988 Fed: Liberal, John Turner
1986 Prov. Liberal, Art Lee or possibly Social Credit, Bill Vander Zalm (I hope not)
1984 Fed, Prov: Liberal, John Turner
1983 Prov: Social Credit, Bill Bennett (I'm guessing, she was anti-NDP and hardly anyone voted Liberal that year)

They'd both be Democrats if they were US Citizens

Fathers Family
- Father's Mother: Voted BC Liberal 2013, I'm fairly certain.  Otherwise at minimum anti-Harper
- Father's uncle: Old Montreal Anglo Corporate Exec. Is now and probably has been solidly LPC and PLQ Liberal since he moved their in the 1950s  
- Father's Sister and Younger Brother - both unionized, NDP voters, though the Uncle's wife is a known Conservative
- Family heritage: Historically NDP/CCF community in BC for many years. Anglo-Protestant Heritage, make likely Tories before depression

Mother's Family
-Mother's Mother - solid Federal Liberal really liked Pierre Trudeau. Never got over the NDP government in the 1990s, and seemed to be BC Liberal there after 2001 until she passed away in 2012
-Mother's Father - Solid Federal Liberal, personally disliked Jean Chretien, [called him 'Cretin']  but might have voted that way anyway
-Mother's Mother's Family: Prairie Norwegians.  probably Liberal/Progressive before the depression, definitely CCF/NDP until 1993, Reform/Conservative thereafter
-Mother's Mother's Brother: Family Friend of the Mannings, so probably Alberta Social Credit back in the day, and was asked to be Reform Candidate in the 1990s by Preston Manning
Mother's Father's Family - Land owning Anglo-protestants, but Liberals, this being BC where politics has always been an economic and not a social question
-Some of Mother's sisters, known BC Liberals

Republican, Republican, Republican.  For all of my immediate and most of my distant family members. 

But are you the kinda South Carolinian whose family were Democrats back-in-the-day or are they of Yankee Republican stock?

Some of my family were.  I had one great-grandfather who was a democrat. But the rest had pretty much moved to voting Republican by Eisenhower.  I don't know much further back than that, but I assume it's a safe to assume at least some of my relatives were in the almost 99% that voted for FDR.

then again, not that many people actually voted at all in the Deep South before 1952 ...

I'll have to look up more details, but I know that from my grandpa (born 1930) to my dad (born 1956) to me, no one has voted for a Democrat.  I have, however, always seemed to be for the most liberal Republican in the primaries.

My father doesn't vote and doesn't seem to think too highly of either of the major parties, and probably views the Greens as being naive. I hadn't thought about this until now, but it's probably because he grew up in a country where there was only one political party and they controlled everything. He's pretty cynical.

My mother has voted Labor and Liberal (I honestly have no idea why, because she's a nurse and a union member). She voted for the Greens in this year's Western Australian Senate election because she was disillusioned with both the major parties but liked the Greens Senator Scott Ludlam.

My step-mother probably votes Labor, because she's a nurse and a union member. Last night she was criticizing the state Minister for Health for incompetence, saying that he should be sacked.

As for me, I first voted for Labor last year in the elections and then voted Labor again in this year's elections. I'm hoping to persuade my sister, who is coming of age, to vote either Labor or Greens. I'm getting quite a bit of help though from maniacs like Troy Buswell and Tony Abbott.

"Don't listen to that ol' Grumpy Gus, sweetheart," Biden said, making his way over to the ranger. "Uncle Joe's gotcher back!" The vice president proceeded to give the woman a hug that lasted slightly too long and pressed slightly too hard against her boobs.
