Romans 14, Genesis 2, Matthew 22, etc. - God has given us two gifts that speak into our (Christians) responsibility when it comes to voting.  The first gift, in our situation in 21st Century America, is the gift of stewarding and having a say in what happens in our government.  The second gift is the gift of His Kingdom .  Jesus is our hope, the church is all about Jesus, so not even the most well-stated political position ought to take precedence over our unity around the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Plus, the problems and challenges of this world cannot be solved by government.  What's the conclusion regarding how you should approach voting?  In a phrase, from Romans 14:19 - "So then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding."
