The Supervisor of Elections, retiring after this go round, predicts a 40 percent turnout which seems odd when you consider what a kerfuffle our political scene is these days. With all the ranting and posturing you'd think more native born Americans would get up and off their backsides to have their say. These are local elections so our votes actually do have meaning at this level. I figure the one per centers have already chosen President Obama for a second term but I doubt they have put their oar in to select school board members in Monroe County or Ron Saunders for one more job in Tallahassee, so I voted with a will. Early voting is quite popular alongside the absentee ballots of yore, yet that must leave half my eligible neighbors not bothering to show up. What a waste.
