For some romantic relationships, a difference in voting doesn't mean much, while others may see it as a serious issue.

So, I know it's hard for people with partners who vote differently than them, but it's time to have that conversation: How do you keep the peace if you vote differently?

Maybe your partner's political views heavily shifted in the last few years, and you've agreed to keep your votes private to avoid any arguments.

Or maybe your partner's voting choices strayed so far away from your own that it caused heated fights and ended the relationship?

Or maybe you and your partner have respectful political debates at home, but when it's time to vote, you agree to disagree.
