Vote or No Vote?
Based on a tiny, non-scientific poll (ours) we found that 79% of the people who responded to the question "Will you vote in the upcoming election?" will vote and a surprising 21% said they would not vote. Unfortunately we didn't break out the reasons for not voting (apathy, lack of a decent candidate, felon, non-citizen) but that seems like a huge percentage of people who aren't going to exercise their right to vote. Granted I would have liked a better set of candidates to vote for but I did cast my mail in ballot. I'm just happy that in a week all of the horrible political advertising will stop. It seems like the closer it gets to the election, the more heinous the advertisements get.
