Well, in Switzerland we go often to vote. We vote on a Federal, cantonal and communal basis. Personally I think that voting is a very important thing to do and we must do it with responsibility. What I do before the vote itself is to talk a lot with different peoples around the aspects and issues of the vote, watch debates on TV
and read a lot on different newspapers. And no, I don't talk only to lefties but basically I try to get a wide range of opinions to build my own. The fact remains that my vote goes almost always to the socialists and ecologists side. But I admit that in some cases and specially on a cantonal basis (grand conceal) I do vote sometimes for some guys at PDC (Partie Democrate Chretien) which I personally know and appreciate even if I don't totally agree with their point of views. Since some years we are also able to watch live on TV
the debates of our grand conceal who is the cantonal political authority and I must say it helped a lot to know better the politicians from each sides and how they work.
