Vote off the major party rows!

The names of many of the individuals for whom I’m planning on voting will appear on the ballot under political parties OTHER than the two major ones. For example, in New York State, we have a Working Families Party that reflects my values and that lists many of my favored Democratic candidates in their Row. So, rather than voting for them under the Democratic Row B, I will flip the stwitches under for them in WFP’s Row H. It’s one way of voicing my dissapointment and dissatisfaction with the major political parties.
Sometimes the people I want to vote for don’t all appear under the Working Families Party, so I’ll search out my favorite candidates under the Green Party or the Liberal Party — and sometimes even the Libertarian Party, just so I don’t support the mainstream power brokers.
That I’m using my one vote to voice two opinions.
