We get this question all the time. Although girls at our organization never tell people how to vote (it’s just not our place to do so), we have always espouse the traditional view that we women are not well-informed enough about current topics and educated enough about politics to vote. That’s why it has never been an issue on how or who we should vote for.

We leave the decisions up to the head-of-the-household. Critics will say that women in the past have fought for our right to vote. We certainly appreciate that effort, and we fully utilize that right. We exercise the freedom of either choices and we are all. We either stay at home and refrain from voting, OR if additional votes are needed for our husband’s candidate, we vote for who our husband tells us to vote for. He is the head of our household and we follow the head. Our duty as Stepford wives is not to question or inquire, we leave it up to our men to make informed decisions.

So come these primaries, caucuses, and presidential elections, we hope you will do what we do and follow your husband’s lead. Of course, we also hope you will vote for a candidate who is conservative, Christian, and stands for traditional values.

A Stepford Wife Votes Who Her Husband Tells Her To Vote For

Midterm Elections are here! And though we are sure rooting for our husbands’ party. We girls admire what women suffragists did for pushing for a woman’s right to vote. However we feel that we are mostly not smart enough to take the entire political picture into consideration. The world of men and the business of running a country is really too confusing for us.

Happily, for those of us who use the polling station as a way to socialize and say hi to the other girls, we have our husbands to tell us how and who to vote for. We listen to our men and trust they know the right candidate to pick. A very few of the more inquisitive wives sometimes ask their husbands how they come to their choices. Almost all the time, the more liberal and open-minded men would just chuckle and say “how cute it is you’re trying to appear smart! Just put your practice ballots over ours, and trace our picks.”

The rest of the husbands just tell us to stay at home. They say those flashing lights and buttons are too complicated for us to work.

And that’s fine by us!
