what happens if less than 50% of the population votes.....
Ha! I don't think more than 50% of eligible voters have voted in a single election, in my life time. Americans are extremely lazy in the fact that they do not pay any attention to politics. About half of the voters will vote however their friends are going to vote, or they will vote based on how well they like the looks of a candidate!

Ohio's primary is on March 4th. And, I will be voting for Ron Paul. I know he won't win the nomination. But, it will send a message to the Republican party that they have moved too far to the left, and disfranchised a large portion of their party by doing so. I really don't like Jaun McCain. He has even said that Hillary would make a good president. He talks a conservative talk, but walks a socialist walk.

you dont have compulsary voting, so your voting system is a joke
I agree, I think it should be mandatory for a citizen to vote. I am not for socialism - but I do think it is the reponsibilty of each adult citizen in a country to vote. There are so many people in countries out there that would consider the chance to vote such a blessing and so many Americans dont take advantage of it

If you cant tell, I voted Regardless of rather or not my single vote will change an outcome, I will exercise my right to do it.

Yep, I know at least a half a dozen myself. They think it doesn't matter if they vote, and then they bitch about the politicians that are elected. Truely a sad state of mind.

We have been using touch screen voting in my county for four years now, and I like them. On the right side of the machine, there is a paper print out that records your vote and you can verify that your votes were recorded properly. Any doubt, and we can hand count the paper ballots.
