What Motivates You to Vote?

.
The recent election in UK made got me thinking about why I vote. Obviously, it depends on what the vote is about but here I'm talking politics.

Do I vote for policies I think will best for my country or is it much more personal than that?

Until the last election it was definitely policies that motivated me. I cared more about big internal issues like the economy, education and housing. Personal issues were a secondary consideration.

The May v Corbyn election, however, saw a major reversal for me. I was swayed by proposals on social care, winter fuel allowances for the elderly and the scrapping of free school meals for tiny people. There didn't seem any point in voting according to the countries needs. Ordinary, man-in-the-street people mattered more to me.

What motivated you? I'd be very interested in your comments.

ze2000 Nice topic. I was thinking recently on how to decide what to vote. It's not that easy because there's no manual to it. You have many ways of deciding your vote but there are two main ways: You vote the best for you or you vote the best for the country. It's not always the best for both, so you need to make a choice.

Regarding your question I think it's a social responsibility, but also a choice.

LiaF7 I vote when I believe in a candidate and won't allow others to decide for me the direction of my country.
