vote for (someone or something)

vote for (someone or something)

1. To cast a ballot in support of a political candidate or proposition. I voted against raising taxes, but apparently the majority of people thought it was a good idea and voted for it. After that scandal, few people voted for the senator for reelection.
2. To express one's preference or desire for something. I thought going camping would be a great vacation idea, but the kids all voted for a trip to their grandparents' house in Florida instead. A: "What would everyone like for dinner?" B: "I vote for pizza!"
