Off-year elections occur in the middle of presidential terms. They usually reflect the current opinion of the President and his party. As such, they may predict what will happen two years later, in the next presidential election. However, much can change in two years and the candidates two years later may be very different from the present leadership.

Why do some nonvoters deliberately choose not to vote?

When you have an election (such as a US Presidential election) in which there are many millions of people who are eligible to vote, it becomes difficult to believe that your single vote will affect the outcome (although the US Presidential election was bizarrely close in the year 2000, and was decided by a margin of about 300 votes). If you cannot change the outcome of the election, what does your vote accomplish? Well, in a sense it does accomplish a number of things. It helps to create an atmosphere of voter participation, to encourage others to also vote, since all of these individual voters do influence the election collectively, even if they do not decide an election individually. In addition, even when a particular candidate or party loses an election, they do care about the number of votes that they got; a narrow defeat has a very different meaning for the political future of that candidate than a crushing defeat does. But many voters do not concern themselves with these implications of voting, and really are only thinking about whether their vote will determine the outcome of the election - and it won't.
