Why I’m Breaking My No-Voting Rule This Season

For the last 30 years during which I’ve been eligible to vote in any election, I’d never done so. I’d never so much as registered to vote. I’d never thought about voting or wanted to vote or felt there was any reason to vote. My view on the political system was that there would never …
