Carly Fiorina Wants to Run For Senate but Has a Spotty Voting Record

Carly Fiorina's Spotty Voting Record: Shocking or So What?

Former eBay CEO Meg Whitman isn't the only businesswoman gunning for a political career in California. Republican Carly Fiorina, once the head of Hewlett-Packard, wants to challenge Barbara Boxer to her senate seat. Just one problem: she has a very spotty voting record.

According to Morris County, NJ, election officials, Fiorina registered to vote in 1997 but never actually voted there; her record in California isn't consistent either. A Fiorina spokesperson says that while "she didn't vote all the time . . . she did vote." Would you vote for a senator who doesn't vote much herself?

For a second I thought it was Celine Dion.

I think it's relevant, but not a deal-breaker. I disagree with the idea that she should have voted in every election possible. If say, she didn't start voting until she was 25, but has voted in every election since, I wouldn't even consider it relevant.

Haha, I obviously didn't read the comments before posting. But I still stand by what I said. Even if there are many candidates, the fact that campaigning requires so much money kind of negates the choices. If you're going to get money, you basically have to brown nose a bunch of people. A candidate can't help but get caught up in the bipartisan system. I'm so tired of our parties that honestly, i've become quite the bad voter myself. However, I'm an educated person, and if I ever really thought I could make a difference in politics, I'd hope that people would support me despite my rocky relationship with the ballot.

Maybe there was no one worth voting for. It's not like that hasn't happened before...

mixtape- On most ballots there are lots of candidates plus write in, moreover there are often levies for schools and issues. I remember in college the dumb people voted themselves out of a middle school. You heard me right, this small rural town voted not to fix up their meddle school so now they don't have one, they just have a bunch of trailers, by the high-school (which is falling apart).

I don't see how this is biased as well. Oh and if someone is legitimately interested in politics then they usually make the effort to educate themselves and vote. I've voted in every election since I was 18.

Maybe she didn't vote because she didn't like any of the candidates?

Honestly, I don't like either of them.

It would've been nice to see her have a consistent voting record however, it is not the most important factors. Plus, let's look at the voting records for many in Congress. A lot of them miss voting on bills consistently. Also, she has got to be better than Barbra Boxer. This one is a classic, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ryEGmkjv8R8. There is no way that woman has shed more blood, sweat and tears than that man sitting before her. How disgustingly disrespectful.

i think if someone is genuinely interested in politics and affecting the government, he/she should have voted in every election possible. this makes me think that she isn't really in it for the political aspect and is more interested in fame.

I don't think this is shocking — after all, remember how Madonna did the voting ads but hadn't voted herself? — but it's disappointing nonetheless.

Tres, I love this blog but it kills me how biased it can be. Not that I need this blog to lean with my views, but all I'm asking for is some bipartisanship
