POLL: Do You Vote?
Voting is a right–but not one always taken advantage of.
Voter turnout is never 100 percent, unfortunately. So, some of you aren't voting.
In Dearborn's last November election, the gubernatorial one that made Rick Snyder governor of Michigan, there was a 43 percent voter turnout. And in 2008 with the election of Barack Obama, turnout was closer to 75 percent.
However, city elections generally bring in far less, with 2009's turnout coming in around 30 percent.
Voter turnout tomorrow, Election Day, may not hit 75 percent, or even 30 percent. In fact, voter turnout is expected to be so low that the city made the decision last month to consolidate several precincts.
The big question is: Why?
For you non-voters out there: Why don't you vote?
If I'm one of those non-voters, what would you tell me to get me to vote?
