Low TurnoutOctober 31st, 2007 by Steven Gardner
Kitsap Sun reporter Angela Smith has some questions for you. She’s working on a story about low voter turnout in elections like the one we’re in the middle of. Granted, you might not be the target audience, because if you read this site, chances are good you’re going to vote by Tuesday. Nonetheless, she’d like to know:
What would keep you from voting in a junior taxing district race or any of
the smaller, less publicized races such as sewer, water, fire districts,
How do you learn about the issues and candidates in those races?
Do you feel that those races (besides school boards) make much of an impact
on people’s everyday lives?
