My father has never voted because he's always been on drugs.

My mother's first vote in a presidential election was in 2012, when she voted for Romney. I was more than a little upset.

My dad was a Republican as far as I know. Only primary vote I know him to have cast is for Romney in '08. Little idea of his voting record pre-'08 but for my family's support for Bush (in '04) and his prioritization of right-to-life candidates. My mom has said that she may have voted for Clinton twice. Voted for Romney in probably both primaries, Republican in the general. Can't give you much more than that.

Its funny I read thru all these posts of how Mom and Dads voted in the past. I see all the 1980 Carter, 1984 Mondale, 1988 Dukakis, 1996 Dole votes, then realizing how badly they lost (particularly Mondale) with all these confirmed votes. I know this obviously is non scientific but its kinda funny none the less

Recent ones I knew for both of them. Dad I asked a few years back, some of them he wasn't sure, others I'm not sure IIRC. 


Dad
68- Humphrey
72- Nixon
76- Ford?
80- Carter?
84- Reagan
88- Bush?
92- Clinton..
96- Clinton
00- Gore
04 Bush
08- Obama
12 Obama


Mom, 72-88  really have no clue, proably a bit of a mix
92 Perot..
96 Clinton
00 Gore
04 Bush
08 Obama
12 Obama


In 92 I know one voted for Clinon the other for Perot, I think it was my dad for Clinton and Mom for Perot, but not certain.  Mom was actually a registered Republican in NY, but never knew how and considered herself an Independent, and was more apoltical.  Dad was registered Democrat, wasn't really aware of it either, considered himself an Independent but leaned slightly more Democratic.

My parents moved to S.C in 2009 (right outside of Charlotte) which doesn't have registration by PArty, but now are both pretty much solid Democrats.

My Dad:
1992 Clinton
2000 Bush
2004 Bush
2008 McCain
2012 Romney

By the time the primaries get to Kentucky they are irrelevant, my dad always chose the presumptive nominee.

My Mom:
1992 Clinton (almost voted Perot)
2000 Bush
2004 Nader
2008 McCain
2012 Romney

Independents can't vote in Kentucky primaries.

My grandmother voted GOP until Obama, as she thought her social security would be cut.

My great grandmother was born in 1912 voted GOP every election.  She couldn't vote in Presidential elections until 1964 (lived in DC), and voted GOP until at least the '90s.  She also had met Alf Landon on multiple occasions.

My mother's side is mostly Democratic.

Traditionally, we were a Republican family, but we were from the old Rockefeller Republican breeding.  Starting in the 90s, our family has veered more towards the Democratic Party.

My dad has always voted libertarian, no exception, since 1984 when he could first vote. My mom was exclusive republican since 1992 when she could up until 2016 when she voted for Sanders as a write in. She said that in 2020, if the democrats nominate somebody like Booker, she would vote for them, if not she would stay home.

I voted for Johnson in 2016, although with hindsight I would vote Trump, not because I get like a giant hard on for his presidency, but because I am so tired of the wasted vote mentality and I would never vote for Hillary, so he would be my default choice on a repeat 2016 case.

In 2012, there was a mock election in my history eighth grade class. I was the only person in my class who voted for Romney. Needless to say I was the only out republican in my senior year of high school

My Dads voted straight democratic his entire life same for my mom but she voted Stein in 2016 but it was more of an anti clintonvote than a pro stein vote. they both backed Bernie in the primary and my Dad backed Obama in 08 and my mom backed Clinton in 08. The only other primary I know about there support in is 92 both of them Supported Brown and are still salty about him losing the nom to this day.

My sister:
2016 (her first and only Presidential election so far)-Clinton

My mom:
2016-Clinton
2012-Obama
2008-Obama
2004-Kerry
2000-Gore
I'm not sure how she voted in prior elections, most likely for the Democrat.

My dad:
2016-Trump (due to his idiotic notion that his business was more successful during the last Republican President)
2012-Obama, I think?
2008-Obama
I'm not sure how he voted in previous elections.

My grandma:
2016-Trump
2012-Romney
2008-McCain
2004-Bush
2000-Bush
Every previous election dating back to her first one was for the Democrat. I know that for a fact. She made a massive 180 in 2000 upon meeting her new boyfriend and becoming brainwashed as Fox News became all that they watched on television. It really was baffling how much she changed. She used to be a Democratic council member in my town and started mandatory recycling pickup and other environmental reforms. She was also a member of the League of Women Voters. Hell, she banned elephant imagery from the household, she was that much of a hardcore Democrat. She uses the excuse of "the party left me" but that is just not true when you go from pretty much being an eco-feminist to a Tea Party Trump cultist. She sold out for the sake of her relationship with her new boyfriend, it's as simple as that.

I went off a little there, my apologies. It was a bit cathartic, honestly.

My parents:

1984(?)-2008: The Republican
2012: McCain write-ins
2016: Johnson & Clinton

My grandparents on both sides of the family (or at least the ones who voted) voted Republican their entire lives, including 1964. My great-grandparents through my father's mother voted Republican, including 1932 and 1936, and their ancestors mostly voted Republican or Whig in every election back to the 1820s. Through my mother's mother, my ancestors were Irish Catholics, so they were definitely voting for Democrats. My mother's father's parents were non-citizens, and my father's father's ancestors were Pennsylvania Germans who probably didn't vote.

Dad (1964-)
2004: Kerry
2008: Obama
2012: Obama
2016: Clinton

Mom (1964-)
2004: Kerry
2008: Didn't vote
2012: Didn't vote
2016: Clinton

Not sure for before 2004. My dad voted pretty enthusiastically for Obama both times, however in 2016 was definitely lukewarm at best at voting for Clinton (he never would have voted for Trump.) My mom is not really political - she only voted for Kerry in 2004 because he was the Senator from our state. She actually supported Romney for governor in 2002 and supported him over Obama in 2012, although she didn't vote. Didn't feel like voting mattered but voted in 2016 for Hillary (likes her more than my dad does) in order to stop Trump.

I haven't asked and doubt they would be certain themselves, but here are my guesses. My father and mother have each been eligible to vote (in NJ) since the 1984 and 1988 elections, respectively.

My father probably hasn't voted in every election, but he almost certainly voted for the Democrat each time he did. I am certain that he voted for Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Barack Obama (in 2012), and Hillary Clinton. He may not have voted in 2008. He likely didn't vote in 1984 or 1988.

My father did vote for Chris Christie twice and will probably vote for the Republican in 2021, given how he talks about Phil Murphy.

My mother has voted for every Republican since then, with the possible exceptions of  McCain and Dole. It's possible that she voted for Obama in 2008, since she has spoken of how disappointing she found him.

Not sure before '88:

Mom:
1988: George H. W. Bush (R)
1992: Bill Clinton (D)
1996: Bill Clinton (D)
2000: Al Gore (D)
2004: John Kerry (D)
2008: Barack Obama (D), inc. Obama in the Democratic primary
2012: Barack Obama (D)
2016: Hillary Clinton (D), inc. Clinton in the Democratic primary

Dad: exactly the same, except he voted for Sanders in the Democratic primary

I'm pretty sure they were somewhat open to split-ticketing in the '80s and '90s, but post-2000 or so they have both been pretty strictly Democratic downballot, barring a couple minor exceptions (ex. I think my mom voted for Ruth Johnson for Michigan Secretary of State in 2010). They seem to become more liberal with every day that passes under the Trump administration.

Paternal grandparents: Not really worth speculating. They are/were anti-gun, ant-free trade Republicans (who supported Bill Clinton in 1996) later in life, unsure prior to 1980. They're literally of Italian and Greek descent and 3rd and 2nd generation immigrants who lived most of their life in Brooklyn, NY. Their younger relatives who still are alive are wealthy white educated voters and many of whom still live in New York, so they are Democrats.
