Democrat Representative Karen Bass used an open Twitter poll to decide whether or not she should attend President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration.

"I want to hear directly from my constituents!" she wrote on Twitter. "Do you guys think I should attend the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump?"

The poll, which she directed at her own constituents in California's 37th District in Los Angeles, was open for anyone to vote.

After Twitter users from around the globe put in 12,704 votes, the result was 84% voting no. Your's truly voted no for the lulz.

Sharing the results, Bass wrote: "After receiving an overwhelming response on the twitter poll, I've decided not to attend the inauguration of President-elect Trump."

Twitter users questioned whether she understood how the internet works.

Others celebrated her decision:

I support her decision wholeheartedly. Hopefully, if there's enough of a ruckus in California over the next four years we can either break the state up, let them secede, or just outright kick them out of the union.
