I guess I am the older demographic (mid-fifties) but I don't vote. Have been watching since the end of season 1 and in all those seasons the only person who ever motivated me to vote was Elliott Yamin. SIGH And we all know how that worked out. I dialed and dialed my fingers to the bone, land line and mobile phone for 2 hours each performance night. I sobbed, I mean sobbed when he left. My husband thought I was nuts. I vowed then and there never to vote again. I have come close to voting, following season with Melinda Doolittle and then Crystal Bowersox, but no, I won't vote again.
