ELECTIONS
[ Also see Politicians Voting ]

Elections are won by men and women chiefly because most people vote against somebody rather than for somebody.
      - Franklin Pierce Adams

The election of a deputy to the Legislature offers a noble and majestic spectacle comparable only to the delivery of a child. It involves the same efforts, the same impurities, the same laceration, and the same triumph.
      - Honore de Balzac

I am of the opinion which you have always held, that "viva voce" voting at elections is the best method.
  [Lat., Nam ego in ista sum sententia, qua te fuisse semper scio, nihil ut feurit in suffragiis voce melius.]
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short),
        De Legibus (III, 15)

Appeal must be to an informed, civically militant electorate.
      - Justice Felix Frankfurter

So tonight, to you, the great silent majority of my fellow Americans, I ask for your support.
      - Richard Milhous Nixon

An election cannot give a country a firm sense of direction if it has two or more national parties which merely have different names but are as alike in their principles and aims as two peas in the same pod.
      - Franklin Delano Roosevelt

I will not accept if nominated, and will not serve if elected.
      - General William Tecumseh Sherman

You won the elections, but I won the count.
      - Anastasio Somoza
