Heavener, OK

#1 Mar 13, 2012
Something else has been sticking in my craw this week, and it is the low voter turnout in our PPP election last Tuesday.

I am pleased that the GOP candidate I supported won the majority of votes for the nomination in Oklahoma, and even more decisively in Le Flore County but only 29% of the eligible voters went to the polls.

Even more dismal is less than 10% of the eligible Democrats voted. I have talked with a lot of them over the last week and only 1 went to the polls. The others did not even know there was an election.

Wake up America! Make an effort to get informed and participate in your government while we still can, or we will soon not be able to.
