"Nobody will ever deprive the American people of the right to vote except the American people themselves and the only way they could do this is by not voting."
Franklin Delano Roosevelt (32nd president of the United States, 1882–1945)

Today was an election day. Our city had a mayoral, several township and school board races for the citizens to cast there votes. The mayor was unopposed, as were some township and school board positions. At 12:20pm, I was only the 24th person to cast my vote. I think when HandsomeHusband voted around 5pm, he was about number 53. That's not a good turnout. I'm thinking the numbers were low because first: many races were unopposed, and second: there was no local or bond issues for people to get worked up about...therefore, voter apathy prevailed. But, still, I'm glad I went and did my civic duty by voting.
