Artist Ariel Penrod of Walsenburg said she's never voted before, and doesn't plan to change that this fall. 

"If you're voting, then you're giving away your permission to the game. It's like we're all a bunch of sheep. And it's like, 'there's a f——-mountain lion, or a wolf. Who are you going to vote for?' It's ridiculous," she said. "Politics is like many blood-sucking insects. Poly-ticks."
