MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - More than two thirds of Alabama's registered voters didn't vote in this year's primary election. 

When so few of us decide who represents us, it is tough to complain with the results, particularly if those elected don't deliver what we expect. 

It hardly encourages better candidates to run when all the time, effort and expense they accrue seems to fall on deaf ears. 

We all have excuses for not voting, but the bottom line is when we don't vote, we show we don't fully appreciate our democracy that puts a premium on our right to do so. 

We should value this right and make our voice be heard. 

The primary runoff is July 13 and the general election is November 2. 

Exercise your right to vote and shape the leadership to represent us.
