    Mostly we have talked in person how bad both candidates are this year. It's best to keep quiet about who I'm actually voting for, but I have never been so discouraged in the options available.

    I trust independent articles online the most. I can quickly read about them. Watching news is usually a waste of time and really infuriating to me.

    I don't like talking with just anyone about the election, because people seem to be so passionate one way or the other. Everyone seems to be talking about Donald Trump, but I would NEVER vote for him. Anyone who has done a reality show is not appropriate to be President of the United States. I do discuss some things on Twitter about it...Just to let people know some outrageous things. I tell everyone who I am voting for. It is certainly no secret that I am voting for Hillary. It doesn't bother me when someone tells me that they are voting for Donald Trump - I just think that they are making a mistake. I get most of my information online at several different news sites.

    This is a touchy subject in my household and extended family. We've had a few discussions get quite heated and have to stop bringing up politics now.

    I do talk to friends and family about the election and sometimes have to change the subject because of how different our views are. This is almost always in person. I rarely engage in talk of the election of social media. Too many ways to misconstrue words.

    Mostly talk in person, some online with those not nearby. If someones tells me they are voting different from me I ask why to see what they will say, it could be informative. Get info from new, social media, tv, radio, newpapers many sources so I can see various sides and issues.

    Talking about how this country really needs major changes fast. Obamacare needs to go away because it is costing the jobs of healthcare workers. I already lost my job and we fear my husband is next. People cannot afford to actually use their health insurance because paying for it is putting them in debt. Can only hope Trump wins this election and can make the promised changes to immigration, racism, infrastructure, healthcare, etc.
