Get out and vote

Turnout for this past March primary was the worst in recent California history. People in the horse-and-buggy days, it’s been found, scored much higher in terms of voter participation than today’s voters.

If you’re totally apathetic, not interested in politics, don’t like any of the candidates, don’t like the initiatives/measures, are sick or seriously disabled, or whatever reason, you can still vote as an absentee easily – provided, of course, that you register to vote. (Most nonvoters just don’t bother to register to vote.)

Please vote next time. There’s so much at stake and it’s guaranteed not a waste of time.
