Voter turnout a joke

August 9, 2013

Dear Editor:
Congratulations to Lincoln Township voters. Of all the townships in Clare County , those in Lincoln Township ‘s Precinct 1 showed how much they value the right to vote. A WHOPPING 11.31 percent turned out. I just hope the poll workers in Lincoln Township weren’t overwhelmed by the 81 voters who turned out during the 13 hours the polls were open on Tuesday. Luckily, Franklin Township poll workers had it a little easier. Only 3 percent of voter turned out in that township to vote. That’s 20 people, fewer than two per hour.
To all those who didn’t see their issue decided in their favor, hey, elections are the American way. It’s democracy in action. The people have spoken…a few of them, anyway.
