I'll guess here, I think I can figure it out.

Dad (I - GA):

1984: Reagan
1988: Bush Sr.
1992: Clinton
1996: Clinton
2000: Gore
2004: Kerry
2008: McCain Primary: Huckabee

Mom (D - GA)

1972: Nixon
1976: Carter
1980: Carter
1984: Reagan
1988: Not sure (she said she hated Dukakis, however)
1992: Clinton
1996: Clinton
2000: She said she didn't like either Gore or Bush
2004: Kerry
2008: McCain Primary: Huckabee

I only listed primaries I knew about how they voted.

Maybe he just really respects combat veterans.  Though I don't know if Gore is technically considered to be a combat vet, at least he went overseas.

Yeah, although I doubt my dad does not soley votes on that, he was in The Army for a while.

He's a big disliker of Bush and Obama, for different reasons, but he has good backup for it. (I really should try to make him take the PM test. I made my mom take it, her score was E: +0.9 and S: +1.22)

How did she vote for Barr then? Or was it just a general protest vote against the 2 parties?

     Pretty much. Actually, almost every ticket she's voted for for President has really been a vote against the opposition. I think the only time she's ever voted for someone was for McGovern.

My granddad is a big Republican. He claimed he was one in the 1930s and 40s when the south was 90% democrat. My mom is a moderate but didn't like Obama but also doesn't like the Iraq war.  My dad is pretty right winged. The rest of my cousins and aunts are Republicans except for my cousins in DC.

Father:
(presumably) Republican in every election since 1972, excepting '84, '92, and '96 when he was overseas.

Mother:
Didn't vote, 1972 - 2000.
Very much a swing voter in 2004 & 2008, voted (barely) for Bush in 2004, not sure for whom in 2008 (I'd guess Obama, but I don't know).

Paternal Grandmother:
Republican, 1952 - 1988 (presumably), Democratic thereafter.

My dad toured with the Young Republicans in support of Barry Goldwater. The first person my mother voted for was George McGovern. They have stuck with their respective parties ever since but haven't voted in the last couple of elections due to their votes canceling one another out.

My dad is kinda a wierdo... hated pretty much everything associated with Jimmy Carter's administration... not a huge fan of Clinton, since then has become an "independent" who consistently votes democratic

My mom is a yellow dog dem, like me.

My parents have almost certainly never voted for a Republican for President, although one or both may have voted for Anderson in 1980. They lived in Massachusetts at the time and would have been a part of his target demographic, although both adore Carter now. Other than 1980, definitely Democratic in every election since their first in 1972 (although my mom turned 18 only a few months before the election in 1972, so she might not have voted; or maybe she did, given the hype around the change in the voting age).

Otherwise, my brother voted for Kerry and for Obama, as have I. My sister apparently did vote this year, much to my surprise, and for Obama.

Various and sundry more distant family members are fairly split and not, for the most part, all that interesting.
