Family Consensus?

Hi all
Thanks for all your suggestions for the previous post.
Yesterday was election in TN. I pushed that big blue button, And whoa I performed my Democratic duty!!

Afterwards, it was all 'whom did you vote for?' talk among us friends.

Me: I voted for X
Friend: I voted for Y
Me: Oh, cool, my dad voted for Y too.
Friend: Oops, how come..no unity in your family or what?
Me: Oh please, If you want more, my mom voted for Z.
Friend: Oh...

So tell me guys, is it necessary to support a party as a family? Isn't it an independent decision..I always thought so, and will continue to think so.

Nalla dhoru kudumbam oru palgalai kalagam... So obviously there will be many departments with various courses and interests...so ...its individual right to exercise their individual rights and i feel thats democracy...

I did not even get might Voter's card :-(( Guess they would have feared that if I vote, there might be a revolution ;-)

have the habit of voting as a family.
