Bad politicians are sent to Washington by good people who don't vote.
William E. Simon, Secretary of the Treasury, 1973-4
75% of eligible voters in Lansdowne voted in the Nov. 6, 2018, mid-term election! Those in the 11th precinct should be especially proud, as 82% of those registered voted. In mid-terms nationally, only about 40% usually vote.

An embarrassingly low percentage of Americans exercises their right to vote. Out of 35 developed countries, the United States has nearly the lowest percent of eligible voters who vote (31st out of 35!). Approximately 20% of eligible voters in the United States are not even registered. An even larger percent of those registered do not bother to vote. Voter turnout is especially low in primaries and local elections.
A healthy democracy is only possible with active voter engagement.
