18. It depends on your definition of "truly Democrats"...
Many would argue that most of today's Democrats in Congress and the WH aren't really Democrats at all... that they are quasi-Republican corporatists who are masquerading as Democrats and sullying the reputation of the once-great Democratic brand-name... a brand that was built by the blood, sweat, and tears of laboring people of the past. They might argue that the "true Democrats" (to use your words) are the ones who actually adhere to the principles of the once-great Democratic party - who care enough not to allow themselves to be duped by interlopers. They might even see posts such as yours as displaying evidence of manipulative intent. Unfortunately, this is the type of psychological game-playing that splits a party.

That said, there's no excuse for not voting. There's absolutely nothing to be gained by it, IMO.
