Now, while I personally wish that the election wasn't between two people that were both generally lying, it comes to the minds of the public that they have to choose someone for the election. But I would like to tell them that they don't.

The option to write in someone for an election is an incredibly old and well-used system of voting. If someone doesn't like their choices, they can write in who they honestly believe can win.

Now, while that system is used, it rarely wins the election but it's still there to make the peoples voice be heard. Who knows, maybe at the next election, the candidate that the people chose will be there for the party of their choice.
