Voter apathy

Recently there was a referendum in our Newtown to approve--or not--the budget for the coming year.  It did not pass by 77 votes.  Voter turnout was very low.

The failure of the budget for the 2nd time probably means the proposed all-day kindergarten will not happen next year.

Voter apathy has always been a problem at every lever--local, state, federal.  People just don't care.  Oh sure, they complain enough but they apparently feel that their little vote couldn't possibly do any good.

Voting is the bedrock of a democracy.  Veterans serve to protect ones right to vote. 

Yea or nay--vote!
