Donald TrumpThe 2016 Presidential election is less than three weeks away — who is getting your vote?

Are you voting along party lines? Have you switched over? Do you want to see Hillary Clinton (D) or Donald Trump (R) in the White House? Are you picking an independent candidate? Or maybe you are still undecided.

By the way, absentee voting continues in Fairfax County until Nov. 5.

Whether you are heading to the polls on Nov. 8, mailed your ballot in or will vote absentee in person, please vote. Meanwhile, take our poll (Note: this is not a scientific poll).

  • Mike M

    I’m leaning unpolished Clown over polished Crook. I have no Party. I would be glad to see them both destroyed, or forced to be re-built. One down. . .

  • johnQPublic

    ALL TIME LOW for our nation….as if we didn’t have enough issues already. Basically the president is just a “puppet” anyway.

  • Jonesy

    You know, Reston Now, the twitter link was misleading. I hoped that the poll would focus on local elections and issues on the ballot. The presidential results affect most people a lot less than the local results.

  • Brad

    Evan McMullin is also on the ballot in Virginia.

  • CE

    The terrorists have already won.

  • AlliD

    Evan McMullin.

  • Farce 2016

    normally I serve as an election officer but I think its pointless. with Satana being the next “president” I am afraid to go on record voting against her – worried about job and future.

      Is that a requirement of serving as an election officer? Your presidential vote is recorded and kept, aside from being tallied for the election?

  • Jenny Gibbers

    Charles Dorfeuille, hands down winner.

    Just needs to go to Tysons and buy a suit.

    Thanks,

    I am sure I will be the bad one here, but I will refuse to vote for President with these characters.

    I watched 5 minutes of the debates last night as my son was watching for school. The amount of lies being told was shameful.

    Trump: I will change everything. Hey man your the president not the King.

    Clinton: Obama has reduced the National debt by 2/3s. I was thinking damn what a lie and she said it with a straight face.

    • GB

      So Gary Johnson?

      • One Really

        None of the above. 🙂

        • Why do you bother?

          If you don’t vote, you contribute to the success of your least-favorite candidate and abrogate your entitlement to complain about the results.

          • One Really

            Ugh. There is a smiley at the end of my comment.

          • Why do you bother?

            Sarcasm font is so hard to read! 🙂

            That’s not true. Not voting is the same/similar as not voting for. And no, it doesn’t take away from your right to complain.

            Tell me the last time your vote made a difference in an election. I’m fairly certain it’s never made a difference and therefore didn’t really matter. On the off chance that in 6th grade you cast the deciding vote for class clown we are still left with the issue that your vote conveyed very little information. Maybe you liked his knock knock jokes but his yo’mama jokes, and you really liked the other guys musical parodies. None of that was conveyed with your vote, only that overall you slightly preferred the one over the others.

            Democracy – the worst system of government except all the others.

      You have other options.

    One notable write-in for a national K-12 vote was “bacon”.

    Mmmmm, bacon.

  • One Really

    Fair enough, but still pure fiction.

    Obama has doubled the national debt, and it’s not because he cut the deficit. Rather, he spent staggering amounts of money in his first months in office–which he assigns, dishonestly, to the previous fiscal year, under George W. Bush. He “cut” (i.e. spent more gradually) from that spending, but only under protest, after Republicans took the House in 2010.

    • Guest

      Clinton told the truth.

      Feel free to complain about the cherry picked timeline (2009 was a record high deficit year). Don’t get distracted just because you confused debt and deficit.

      • One Really

        2009 was a record high deficit year due to who?

  • GB

    She talked about both but she definitely misspoke/lied. She said she wouldn’t add to the debt, but what she meant to say was, she wouldn’t increase the rate it is projected to increase at. These are pretty different.

  • Jw

    Terriorist grown by Hillary and Obama’s decisions and lack of decisions.
