I'm an American and I have no idea what you're talking about.
Actually, I'm not sure that's what happens here, unless I've misunderstood the double negative.
I think what gronank is trying to say is that when he votes, he has a selection of politicians and he might vote for any one of them. He then chooses who to vote for based on who is the best candidate for his views and beliefs.
In the UK (and I assume the US as well) it comes down to which of the two major parties is least likely to be a complete omnishambles, then (if you're lucky) choosing between the two candidates you hate the least.
I have to say, since being a keen and impressionable person who believed in voting (so much so I actually borrowed a disaffected parent's vote when I was 17) I now can't see much point either. No matter which way I vote my constituency will still return Gove to Parliament
