If You Believe in Right and Wrong, Don't Vote

Interesting article. Here are the first two paragraphs:

"It always strikes me as odd when someone encourages me to vote, but they say they don’t care about who I vote for. They’re just concerned that I participate. Really? These people are that infatuated with the process of voting that they don’t care if you vote for something they believe is wrong?

I can hardly think of any institution other than democracy in which people believe that you should participate, despite the fact that, from their point of view, you’re voting for a result that is bad. What if I voted for a Nazi Party candidate? Is mere participation more important than some sense of right and wrong?"
