Unfortunately, not enough of you took advantage of the privilege we share as Americans, the opportunity to choose our elected officials and vote on the issues. Voter turnout records aren't official yet, but most reports are that less than 40% of registered voters turned out in this very important election year. That's fewer than four out of ten registered voters. That's an abysmal number when so many local and state races were on the ballot. If you didn't vote, you have no reason to complain about the outcome or the policies and plans put into place by the candidates who were elected.
