The daily STEW (Star-Telegram Editorial Writers): Whether you voted early or will wait until Election Day to cast your ballot, did you or will you vote a straight party ticket? Or do you prefer to consider each seat separately and choose the candidate you think is best for the office, regardless of party affiliation?

I voted based upon principles. While there are some conservative issues I disagree with personally, there are almost no liberal issues that I agree with at all. So until we get a third party or independent candidate who is for the betterment of the country as a whole, rather than for special groups/interests and who doesn’t believe in socialism, I will continue to vote along party lines. However I would vote for new blood over entrenched RINOs every time. Jeff Dunlop

I never vote straight ticket. I look at the issues that are important to me and vote for the candidates that are most closely aligned with my views. And although a certain party line might be closer, generally, than the other, different candidates may disagree with their party line and they deserve individual consideration. Penny Bonkowski

I voted for the right man or woman for the job regardless of politics. Darrell Bartell

I seldom vote a straight ticket. Marilyn Miles
