Don't Be a Ghost Voter
Ghost voting is when you do not vote, vote ignorantly or vote against what you believe.Here are a few types of Ghost Voters:
The Sideline Ghost Voter: Non-Political—you may care for certain causes, but are either disgusted with current political atmosphere or view yourself as a non-political person. Either way, you’re out of the conversation.
The Talk-A-Good-Game Ghost Voter: You can debate to the mat on issues in your Sociology class or enjoy ripping political pundits apart in the UC Commons. But, where is your voice when it comes to putting your vote where your mouth is?
The Potato Couch Ghost Voter: No-show—You can’t bring yourself to the polls or even fill out a mail-in ballot. Voting is just not important to you. Your
vote won’t matter that much.
The Posse Ghost Voter: Peer voter/strict party-line voter—Going with the flow is your M.O. You’re part of a group of people or political party whom you like. So what if their political opinions and yours don’t match?
