  •  The mere act of voting is not (0+ / 0-)

    confidential.  In most states, anybody can go to the appropriate office and get a list of everyone who voted in any particular election.  Local, county and state political parties do it all the time.  Does your party consider you a "supervoter" who votes in every election?  How do you think they know if you're a  supervoter?

    Your average joe is not going to do it, because it's relatively expensive.  

    And songs be heard, instead of sighs.

    •  I vote in every election. (2+ / 0-)

      I never, ever skip out on voting.
      Any local politician who knows what's up will keep a list of people like me. I get calls, mail and lit-drops from both parties and any activist group you care to mention.

      If you vote, they want you on their side.
      The Woody Allen quote about "80% of success in life consists of showing up" goes up to 100% when you're talking about politics. Showing up on election day is what it's all about.

      For instance, if I were to vote in all the GOP primaries, you might assume that I always vote GOP. But you can't know which candidate I voted for out of a group or if I vote GOP in elections with other party candidates.
