MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Our editorial earlier this week regarding poor voter turnout lead to the following feedback on wsfa.com and our WSFA 12 News station Facebook page. Here is just a sampling:    

Trish responded with, "When I ask people who didn't vote why they didn't, most often they say it's because they have *no clue* about who is running. They don't know the candidates so they just figure they won't vote. Hard to believe, but that is what I hear."

Shulonda provided the following, "There is a huge disconnect between the common man and politicians.  People don't see hope or change in the city. They don't see anyone running that represents them."

Rick adds, "No statesman to vote for, just career politicians."

Lastly Leslie writes:"Voting is the one thing that costs us nothing … Taxpayers pay for it, but the time that it takes is nothing in the scheme of things. It doesn't always go the way we want, but if you vote – be my guest and complain if you don't vote … keep your mouth SHUT!"

And for the record, only 22% of registered voters came out and voted on Tuesday … certainly not good enough.

 As always, we encourage and appreciate your feedback.
