Informed Voter: just do the math and make a decision

I always vote “on election day” I enjoy the thrill of making time, waiting in line and getting my sticker. Since daylight savings is giving me an extra hour to reflect. I’m going to read both parties platforms and do the math. I will assign a 1-5 point value for my level of agreement/disagreement and then see my percentage of agreement for each platform. I’m not saying I’ll ignore my gut feelings, but since I’m forced to “pick a party” (that doesn’t representat me) I can have some faith in the numbers. I’ve never done this before, so maybe I’m inaccurate. But I don’t need to hear your opinion about how I should vote.
