    Cogito, amen! I register non-partisan and I have no party affiliations and feel the same as you. I base my decision on who gets my vote according to the candidate and how similar his thoughts and ideas are to mine. Most people in my social life just go down the ballot and check their own party affiliation box without any thought to who this person even is that they're voting for. Or the lesser of two evils garbage. You aren't forced to vote for anyone if you don't like either one of them. Either leave the box blank or write in a candidate that you'd consider worthy.

    Of all the representatives I've voted for in my lifetime, I've never voted for anyone better than Don Nottoli. He's a Democrat, and I'm a Republican, and I think he represents my values better than anyone. Everyone who has ever met him knows he's exactly what we need in a politician. He works hard, represents everyone, and takes his district seriously. He let's his solid values determine his votes, not the political winds. Good Luck Don in this election, I want you to keep representing me, my family, and my town.
