As you can see, I am the first to comment on this week's poll. I form my own opinion. I can visit this poll later to see how others have voted.

If you are waiting to see the predictions, you haven't done your homework on whom to vote for or too lazy to voice your choice.

Anybody who would wait to see how others voted before they cast their ballot isn't bright enough to vote in the first place.

I don't vote for either (or any) political party. I vote for the person. I don't wait for anyone else's opinion. I'm not a follower, I'm an individual.

I like to be able to take my time and vote very thoughtfully, and sometimes I feel rushed when I go to my polling place, especially if there is a long line. Now that I am a senior citizen, I feel that it is my right to absentee vote, since it can be physically difficult to stand in long lines.

I do not worry about how others vote, I vote if/when I have an answer to the question or statement.

I see what others have voted, but I do know what I think and vote accordingly. In other polls I do the same.

I base my answer on my own feelings, not to just follow the crowd.

The question refers to online voting, like this one, not voting at the polls.

I don't care how others vote. I choose to go and vote in person, I always have, except one year in the not too distant past, when where I live said that they were only accepting mail-in votes. I imagine that I'm not the only person who did NOT like being told how I cna vote. I think that because

I work the polls so I am there and that is when I vote.

I took all coffee packets, cups, shower products from the hotels that I stayed at. Is this stealing?

A coffee mug with a penguin on it from the Little America Hotel in Flagstaff AZ many years ago. My husband made me do it, and I keep pens in it to this very day.

I don't take things that are not mine from hotels, BNB, etc. Things like sheets, robes, towels and the like which I really like, I find out if I can purchase them. It's just the way I was raised I guess.
