I've been a bit conflicted because as much as I want to vote for Birney, I also view it as imperative for the United States to expand into Texas and for the Mexico-American War to happen. This resulted in me split-ticketing Whigs and Democrats for that issue. This was probably the toughest selection so far though.

Looks like the 3rd election will be tight.

The 1844 election could end up being a 3-way tie.

Since @SeanFKennedy meant to vote for Birney, we have a 3-way tie in 1844. We need at least one more vote.

My vote re-tied it, oops.

Actually. it didn't. One of the Clay votes is really a Birney vote.

Realized my dumb mistake. I guess I was the faithless elector that put Birney over the top.
