Good people, its been a while, but of course I'm back in dire need of help. Does anyone out here NOT vote? Do you know anyone who is adamant and has strong views?

More importantly would you or they be willing to let me interview you? This is for a 4 minute human interest piece I am putting together if you or anyone you know would be willing to talk to me.

Lastly, if neither of those apply to you please take my poll:

As a libertarian, my highest political value is non-aggression. Voting is about the democratic process, and all democracy does is put a pretty face on majority rule, which is ultimately aggression against individual rights (life, liberty, property, free association, etc.). That applies to every democracy that has ever existed, including the one we have here in the USA. I do not support the principle of anyone ruling over anyone else, whether it is one person (monarchy), a small group (oligarchy) or a popular majority (democracy). Therefore, I will not vote.
