Not unless you told someone to vote for that candidate.

no, I never told anyone who to vote for, just lay out the facts and policies and let them make their own independent choice

Brought up "don't ask, don't tell", but had to attend voting and funerals under parents rule.

I have been told many times that I should ALWAYS vote for one of the two top political parties. That's pretty much the same thing as telling someone who to vote for.

I've been told for whom to vote here on TPC many times.
Richard Hertz
I was told many times, by several people, during the primary season who to vote for on TPC. They know who they are...
Buddy Harris
 
Yep.
Richard Sabo
Ahh no, but I told people not to vote for Hildabeast....

I think it's only "telling someone how to vote" if you have some authority over them somehow, otherwise it's just campaigning.
Richard Hertz
I agree with you, but it becomes a crime in some states to tell people you have authority over who to vote for. Some state you can be fired for voting against the company's wishes.

It's still a secret ballot.. so how will they know, unless one is fool enough to tell them? Or is voting absentee...
Richard Hertz
It is a secret ballot, and they can't control who you really vote for, but they can 't limit your free speech rights.

I thought he was out of his mind, who does that? lol Apparently it's no big thing on the internet. Go figure...

I phoned campaigned last year saying only to; be sure to vote and the majority told me they were voting for Trump. I cannot recall anyone saying they were voting for Hillary. Lucky at the numbers I guess. Maybe i'll try Vegas!

I have seven kids that were all Bernie supporters, the youngest being 3 months too young to vote in the election. All six hated Hillary, but liked everything Bernie said. The youngest is going to college, but the other six are adults, on their own, and love to argue politics with old dad. None were ...

Never. Even if I don't agree. Voting is a personal choice and NO ONE should ever directly tell another for whom to vote.
Lisa Alabama
 
I agree, G. That's what I was taught.
Joseph Annillo " Jr is online.
