How many of you voted?

November 8, 2012

Dear Editor:

Really, folks? 58%? Is that the best we could do up here in Clare county when it came to voting in Tuesday’s election? At least that’s what the unofficial results show. That means more than four out of every 10 adults who live here didn’t bother to go to the polls or vote using an absentee ballot. And those votes could have made a difference in a number of local races.

So, if you want to talk politics with me, my first question is going to be to ask you if you voted. If the answer is no, then we don’t talk. In my book if you don’t exercise your right to vote, you don’t get to exercise your jaw muscles and complain about an elected official or discuss an issue.
