Step-father: Presumably all Democratic, but probably won't vote from here on in.

None of the other relatives I'm close have voted, for obvious reasons Tongue

I have an older brother (he is 36 years old) who lives in a tent outside of Bonaparte, Iowa, and makes his living selling religious tracts and pamphlets. As you might expect he has only voted for Ron Paul.

My entire family has voted Democrat since we've been in the United States, with a few exceptions in a branch that identifies more strongly with a different branch of their own family than the one that I'm in (the most recent Republican candidate for Massachusetts State Auditor is actually in this branch).

Interesting! How would you describe this person's politics? Because MA Republicans, like many (most?) Republicans in the Northeast, tend to be a bit more...um...'traditionally" Republican than elsewhere in the country.

My father has voted for the Democrat in every presidential election since 1972 (his first) except for 1980, in which he voted for John Anderson. Unsurprisingly, he is a registered Democrat.
My mother does not seem to have strong political views and does not always vote, but I don't believe she has ever voted Republican. She is an independent.
Both of my grandmothers are lifelong Democrats. My paternal grandmother even claims to have met FDR when she was a teenager living in Philadelphia and, afterward, voted for him in 1944.

If a burial strikes my family as too practical, I'd go for either a viking funeral on one of the Great Lakes or to be sealed up in a tomb with my closest servants and bang-maids so they may wait on my every need in the afterlife.

Family used to be pretty republican when the moderates were dominating.  Yes, my family even voted for Uncle Barry in '64.  Then, starting in the mid 80s when it became clear that corporate America was taking over, it's been mostly democratic voting, outside of 2004.

Mom and Dad have both voted straight Republicans since they could vote so.

My Maternal Grandmother voted for JFK in '60, but hasn't voted D since. My mom's brothers both voted for Obama, not sure other than that. My dad's family is mostly Republican as well. I think my aunt and my cousins voted for Obama, however.

Dad- A lifelong Republican in the mold of John Chafee or Nelson Rockefeller. He voted voted for McCain over Bush in the 2000 primaries; ever since Bush, he's been talking about leaving the party. Voted for Obama.

Mom- Pretty centrist. Not very into politics.

Dad's parents- His mom is a liberal Democrats from Boston; despises anything and every Republican. My grandpa on this side died about 8 years before I was born. He was from West Virginia though, so I'll assume he voted Democrat as well.

Mom's parents- Great examples of Dixiecrats who never switched parties. My grandma usually laments at how "un-American" Obama is and says that Carter was the worst President ever. My grandpa on this side is somewhat to the left of my grandma though. They'll still vote for some local Democrats like Mary Landrieu.

Other than that, my extended family is staunchly Republican. My aunts love to hate Michelle Obama and the consensus among them is that Obama was born in Kenya. I consider myself Conservative Democrat, but next to them, I look like a Bernie Sanders socialist.

Mary's mostly a fiscally conservative technocrat type. She was on the Turnpike Commission and an ally of Romney when he was governor. Back when gay marriage was legalized she was one of the people freaking out about it but she seems to have mellowed on that since then. She has a specific (and, to be quite frank, entirely reasonable) grudge against NPR but doesn't seem to be opposed to it on principle.

Yup, that's her (although I'd forgotten about her work for the State Lottery, and I could be confusing that with the Turnpike Authority).

Having immigrated from Russia & the Ukraine in two waves, the first in 1995 and 1997, few people in my family have voted. My paternal grandfather, a former CPSU member and a colonel in the Soviet Army who only narrowly avoided Afghanistan, cast his first and only vote in 2008, supporting John McCain for President and Jerrold Nadler for the House of Representatives. Unfortunately, he passed away from cancer in 2008. My mother also registered for the first time in 2008; she voted for McCain in 2008 and was then a Strickland/Portman voter in 2010 (voting against Dennis Kucinich, I forget the candidate names, both times).

My parents' first election was in 1994, in California. Voted straight-ticket Democrat, including against Pete Wilson. Consistently straight-ticket Democratic after that. Are still very proud for not jumping on the Governator train.

Dad kept his Gore/Lieberman sticker on his car until 2008. They wanted to GO TO WASHINGTON D.C. AND TAKE BACK THE WHITE HOUSE with Howard Dean, but that obviously failed, so they had to settle with Kerry. Voted for Billary in 2008. I'm also pretty sure 2008 is the only time my parents have ever voted differently, with my mom voting Obama and my dad leaving it blank, though they both made sure to vote for Prop 8.

They both voted straight-ticket Republican in 2010 and will probably do so again in 2012.
