Vote a formal indication of a choice between two or more candidates or courses of action, expressed typically through a ballot or a show of hands or by voice.

late Middle English: from Latin votum ‘a vow, wish,’ from vovere ‘to vow.’ The verb dates from the mid 16th century.

So if the word vote comes from the word meaning to vow then does the application to vote have a similar consequence to taking a vow?

Votary a person, such as a monk or nun, who has made vows of dedication to religious service.

mid 16th century: from Latin vot- ‘vowed’ (from the verb vovere ) + -ary

A votive deposit or votive offering is one or more objects displayed or deposited, without the intention of recovery or use, in a sacred place for broadly religious purposes.

Votive is also defined as "offered, given, dedicated, etc., in accordance with a vow." There are two uses of the word vow in the Bible.

The Torah makes provision for "freewill offerings" which may be made by any individual. These are different from votive offerings which are linked to a vow or prayer.

"Either a bullock or a lamb that hath any thing superfluous or lacking in his parts, that mayest thou offer [for] a freewill offering[1]; but for a vow[2] it shall not be accepted." Leviticus 22:23

In this verse a clear differentiation is made between the two. The Hebrew root letters for a freewill offering are נדב (NunDaletBeit) which is the noun nadab[1] from the verb nadab[3], but for a votive offering there are the letters נדר (NunDaletReish) forming the noun neder[2] from the root word, a verb, nadar[4].

In the text we see "[as] a freewill offering" appearing with an additional letter נְדָבָה֙ (NunDaletBeitHey). It takes this form some ten times[5] but appears in other form some 16 additional forms.[6]

In the text we see "but for a vow" appearing with additional letters וּלְנֵ֖דֶר ([[[Vav]]Lamed[Nun]]DaletReish).

Is voting bad

People are already in a political system that is a direct or indirect democracy certainly have motivation to vote.

Democracies are not always a good form of government and for centuries in America they were not considered to good. In fact, until World War II democracy was considered “A government of the masses. Authority derived through mass meeting or any form of direct expression. Results in mobocracy. Attitude toward property is communistic - negating property rights. Attitude toward law is that the will of the majority shall regulate, whether it is based upon deliberation or governed by passion, prejudice, and impulse, without restraint or regard for consequences. Results in demagogism, license, agitation, discontent, anarchy.”[7]

If you live in a democracy and you have a right to vote you certainly may feel a need to vote in self defense in order to protect yourself and your neighbor from the covetous practices of the welfare state and those who desire to rule over and even rob their neighbor.

John Adams: “Democracy... while it lasts is more bloody than either aristocracy or monarchy. Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide."

We have only a few things to do:

Repent which means to think a different way.
Seek to establish a government that run on love and charity instead of fear and force.
Seek righteousness in everything we do where ever we are at or what ever status we are in.
While we do that we should do that together in small intimate groups networked together.
