Washington is not a remotely contested state for the Presidential election, so I spent my vote on Johnson. My vote is worth 0 if it goes to a major party candidate. To a third party candidate, it still counts as part of the 5% popular vote threshold for Federal funding; a vote going to a candidate who can actually win is simply wasted.
The electoral college voting system is terrible and idiotic, but I might as well exploit it while we've got it.
