If you were out and about in Chicago today, you may have heard a disturbing sound. It was the jingle jangle of a thousand lost souls…
…WHO DIDN’T VOTE IN YESTERDAY’S ELECTION!
To quote the Chicago Sun-Times:
As of 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, with 97.39 percent of precincts reporting, voter turnout was 31.35 percent. The record low turnout in a mayoral election that was set in 2007 when just 33.08 percent of voters cast ballots in the contest that saw then Mayor Richard M. Daley be re-elected to his sixth term.
Get it together Chicago! You embarrass me!
Did you vote in yesterday’s election? In the initial election in February? Did your candidates win? Do you have friends/family who didn’t vote? Let me know down below in the comments section!!
