Voter's, Unite!

*Whatever you do vote

Editorial

THERE are as many excuses for not voting in Tuesday's primary election as there are candidates on the ballot: We're tired of elections, campaigns are nasty, politics are tedious and politicians corrupt.

But these are rationalizations for apathy, not reasons to skip the election. In fact, they are some of the key reasons why voters should vote on Tuesday.

The main cause of the out-of-touch nature of politics today is that politicians know that most voters don't vote. So they appeal to a narrow pool of "base" constituents. Special interests pick up the tab, which is why they call the shots.

But if voters would turn out en masse, this cynical system would collapse. So be sure to vote Tuesday, not for the politicians, but for better, more responsive government.
