It's not.

It is over saturated with it right now. But that is because it is the only place the right can have an uncensored view.

It will go back to the regularly scheduled programming in a couple weeks.
There will always be a good amount of politics. But more balanced.

Voat's main focus has always been politics out of necessity - from censorship of reddit and the low visibility/temporary format of /pol/. Voat is the bastard child of the two, born from miscegenation.

I disagree. Voat has always been political. But it was not the main focus when I first got here.

First I was deplorable, now I'm a bastard.

Sweet. I can run with that.

This. Censorship is a fundamentally political issue. Since censorship is driving the growth of Voat, politics is inherently inescapable.

That depends on who is declared the winner of the election. If Hilliary is declared the winner, Voat might become a bastion for the resistance.

Yup. Voat's a good place to discuss politics. I've been following the Donald Trump sub on reddit, and because of that, I highly suspect, moderators have been banning me from "their" communities. Places not even related to politics. And, you know what? I followed all the rules. Why would I get banned? Because I am subbed to /r/the_donald, and I upvote a lot of their posts. Those scummy mods spy on you, and do automatic bans. 90% of them must be neckbeards.

Sadly, I can confirm that this does very little to stem the flow.

All we'll here is either "they stole the election hyperbole" or "when do we arrest all of them hyperbole".

It's not (i.e., /v/Knitting). We're in the last few days of an epic election season so things are a bit busy on that end at the moment.

i.e. means 'that is'

e.g. means 'for example'

Does i.e. not mean "in other words"? I agree with e.g.

/v/Knittinghas had two submissions in the past three months, which is pretty typical for most subverses

You must be looking at the wrong sub: https://voat.co/v/Knitting/new

Edit: OK, I see now - you had been looking at the sub in the default view, not by new.

It isn't if you curate your front page carefully by subscribing only to explicitly non-political subs. But, yes, the all page is mostly about politics right now because that's what most goats want to see.

A thousand times this. Use the front page feature. All is subscribing to all subs... Don't subscribe to subs you aren't interested in.

Really? This is a safe haven for speech. Lots to talk about here. Not just political. Maybe you need to go around to some subs.

Do you like music videos? I love them. Come join me at v/ilovemusicvideos and post your favorites. That's what I primarily came on voat to do, share music vids.

It's not ... there are subs of every variety. At the moment ... and likely even after the elections, politics may seem overwhelming ... but look a v/all/new and you'll see tons of links that aren't politically related being uploaded all day and night.
