"Why bother casting a vote for president?"

    I am surprised to see letters about which presidential candidate to vote for. I get caught up in it myself. But, as New Yorkers, your vote doesn’t count in presidential elections. Due to the heavy downstate registration of Democrats, 100 percent of the votes of the great state of New York, in the Electoral College are already awarded to the Democrat.

    So what do you do with that worthless vote? I try to send a message. Vote Libertarian, or Right to Life, or whatever you believe in, but they can’t win. I am tempted this year to write in “NO.” Do you think the politicians would notice a million “NO” votes?
Rightly writes Michael Rickert of Irondequoit, New York today — Letters to the editor for Sept. 21, 2012.

Not until that "heavy downstate registration of Democrats" the author mentions comes to end. Just kidding. Next time I have the chance! But it's farther non-New Yorkers think!
