This may sound terrible, but I don't care if you vote or not.

Not voting is your right too. If you can't bring yourself to cast a vote for any candidate, or you think yourself under-informed about the election, then don't vote. (Or if you are under-informed, then seriously consider not voting. I mean that.) 

All the exhortations to "GO VOTE!" are well-intended and come from genuinely good people who care — even the ones that say "Go vote or don't compalin!" I salute those folks for their civic-mindedness.

But you don't have to vote and you're still an American in good standing. You also do not forfeit your right to complain about whichever person wins. That right is not granted by voting or participating or even paying your taxes.

So do what you want.
