Every indication so far is that Mitt Romney is going to walk away with tomorrow’s primary in Virginia, and that has prompted quite a few questions about what conservatives who might not be enamored with Romney might do. Should they undervote, vote for Paul, or just not bother?
Since an “undervote” (not casting a vote for any candidate on the ballot) isn’t going to be counted and Ron Paul doesn’t stand a chance of making even a respectable showing, my advice to them is just not to bother. About the only thing that will send any kind of useful message is a very low turnout, clear evidence of our widespread dissatisfaction with the choices we have this time. Maybe that will prompt RPV to establish more reasonable ballot access rules in the future, and that’s about the only positive outcome to be had tomorrow.
Send a message to RPV: if you don’t provide us with candidates that interest us, we’re not likely to come to your party. Find something more interesting to do tomorrow.
