    Just a friendly reminder that there are more than two candidates.


    Not saying who you should vote for, but just remember it isn't just.....  Red vs Blue.

      I live in America. I've never seen voting booths at a grocery store. I'm in Alabama and I usually see the voting booths at schools (high schools and some colleges) and government buildings. I think I might have seen one at a church which is pretty weird.

      I'm American, ive only been legal to vote for a hand full of years, and i do it by mail. that said, the only place that i see with vote here signs are the local gov. buildings. i have never seen/heard of instances where people to to a grocery store to vote.

      I live in Ohio. Never heard of voting in grocery stores until this video. I've only ever seen/ heard of it being in Gov. buildings: Fire Departments, Town/ City Halls, the actual Board of Elections offices, and the occasional school. The only exception I know of is a nearby village held theirs in the Church oCCU one year because the FD was going through renovations.

    That is actually a very convenient location and locations like that should be considered in all areas. I had two choices for early voting: the city utility building and the student center at the local college campus, neither of which are as convenient as that one.

    Everyone should go vote. It takes only a few minutes at most and is very easy.

    Plus if you don't like the candidates from any party you can always write in anyone else's name as a write-in candidate. Which is what I did.

    What the fuck is this?? Voting in a grocery store? That feels very small town but the two small towns I've voted in had them in community centers or churches. 

    • Gildarts FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold That Guy

      7 months ago

      I know really. Primary voting is done at high schools since there is one for every land are/population size(in a given area) so it makes it convenient, but I've never heard about voting a grocery store. That said, if a grocery store is a location that get's more people to the polls then it is a good thing.


      $5 says that it is only there due to it being Austin which skews to the Democratic party and they probably have a higher population of Hispanics which tend to vote for that party. So that might be why a polling location is in a Hispanic grocery store.

      I mean if its convenient it works. Besides, that was a huge store in the middle of shopping plaza, so its not like it was an a small unknown store.


      Also, while your probable right Gildarts, i'd like to point out that both parties most likely(as its hard to prove but kinda obvious both parties would take every advantage possible) do this all the time. For example, voting booths in churches would help the republicans as the religious tend to vote for them.  Its almost funny how theirs a balance of corruption in the system.

    • trollfecta

      We try to have them everywhere, or at least, the idea should be to make it as convenient as possible to vote (why voting day is still not a national holiday here is beyond me). I voted at a local community center, but they have them at some schools in my area, too. Makes it harder for young people to blow off voting when there's booths right on their college campus.

      They just want to make it easy because people here are too lazy to vote. If you put it where the food and liquor are then they'll vote maybe 85% of the time.

      Yeah I thought the same thing! It's amazing and actually pretty smart, in my country the only place to vote is in schools which are assigned depending on the zone you live and also by the first letter of your last name i.e I have to vote about 50 minutes from where I live.

      Actually we can vote for write in candidates. Meaning you literally write the name of anyone you want to vote for and it that person is eligible to be elected then they get the vote. Which is what I did. So that means I can blame everyone else for whichever outcome the election results in.

      To encourage people to go and vote. There's a big part of the US population that don't vote, because they don't think their vote matters, or just don't care. This is why a lot of influential people show themselves voting.

      RT has made at least one video every election since it was founded (this year's will be the third); in fact I think they've made one both for registering and for voting. Burnie in particular has been very vocal about the importance of voting in the past.
