Because I am/have been/will be residing in a DC where I am not eligible to vote because I just moved in. I could vote in Virginia, they would never know that I have already moved. But I think to vote even though the outcome will not directly affect me is not in the “spirit” of the system. Sure I could go and vote just to keep the party I don’t like from winning, but then I would be playing party politics—something I despise (don’t we all?) So I will not be voting this year. First time since I turned 18, I even voted while I was in England!
