I really wanted the pols to knock on my door and ask for my vote.  This year I had strong opinions on some troubling issues.  These opinions included access to medical serviced, corruption and criminal acts, services to seniors and a few others.  Not one person knocked on my door. Due to the lingering stink of our former overlords I knew who I was not voting for but until this morning I was not certain who I would vote for.  I am surprised at my choice but I treasure the fact I live in a country that allows me to vote.  I am part of that 15% that does not wear a party tattoo.  My vote is meaningful and I hope sends some sort of message.
