Halacha - Voting
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: What have the gedolei poskim written about obligation (or lack thereof) of voting for presidential candidate?
Answer:

To the best of knowledge all American Poskim throughout the generations have considered it an obligation to vote in US elections. This is both to perform one's civic duty for a Medina Shel Chessed and also to influence politicians to support the issues that are important to our community if they want our vote.
