voting and conscience
A Better Way to Vote?

Voters already have “more than two options” when campaigns begin. You can vote for your favored option in the primaries. If by Election Day most voters have spurned your favored option, that does not mean you’re being deprived of a chance to vote your conscience; you already did.

To accept the constraints of the majority’s decision is not to endorse it but merely to uphold majority rule. Upholding the basic tenet of democracy should not strain your conscience.
