Vote for the man who promises least; he'll be the least disappointing.
Having personally watched the Voting Rights Act being signed into law that August day, I can't begin to imagine how we could have all been so wrong in believing that more Americans would vote once they were all truly free to do so.
I don't follow politics; it doesn't interest me. So why should I vote?
Democracy means that people can say what they want to. All the people. It means that they can vote as they wish. All the people. It means that they can worship God in any way they feel right, and that includes Christians and Jews and voodoo doctors as well.
I'm not a registered Republican or Democrat. I don't even vote.
When I decide who to vote for as president, I ask myself who will be best for America and for the world.

I think there should be a literacy test and a poll tax for people to vote.

If you know how to read, you have a complete education about life, then you know how to vote within a democracy. But if you don't know how to read, you don't know how to decide. That's the great thing about our country - we're a democracy of readers, and we should keep it that way.

I had incorrectly, for all of my adult life until 2008, believed the biggest voting myth that exists - that ex-felons cannot vote.

If the gods had intended for people to vote, they would have given us candidates.

Joyce Carol Oates
