Cast your vote for your choice for president in 1848 and (should you so desire) explain your thinking in the comments section.
As we approach the 2012 presidential election, I thought it was time to see how readers of this blog would have voted in previous presidential elections from 1844 to 1876. In doing this, I’m asking you as you to cast your ballot … none of this “it would depend on where I lived at the time” chatter or other squabbling with the rules of a very simple exercise (you folks know who you are). You’re defined as eligible to vote, period, regardless of age, race, gender, or residence.
Cast your ballot and tell us why.
