Since when does the ability to vote have monetary value that losing it is considered a Davar haAveid?

comment What happened to the Sephardic Pashta?
hebrewbooks.org/pdfpager.aspx?req=34300&st=&pgnum=74 lists both Kadma and Trei Kadmin, but says they don't count as two and the latter is just to indicate Mil'eil.

comment Makaf in כי-תראה but not in כי תפגע
In general, the "rules" of Makkaf are full of exceptions. Devarim 13:13 has a closed ע but sill has a Makkaf.

What loss are you experiencing by not voting? Are you afraid the taxes will go up? Is that considered a loss?

@SethJ To be fair to him the word "matza" probably doesn't mean "from 5 grains" (though we use it nearly exclusively to mean that) but something like "flat cake"

"Would it not follow that, for Ashkenazim, Kitniyoth baked into chip form (or tortilla form or taco form) following the same procedures as for Matzah should be acceptable (and potentially re-engineerable into other foods)?" Isn't that the same question?
