On June 10 primary elections were held. There are 151 people in Williamsburg County who wished they had voted! There are 150 people who are happy that they resisted the urge not to vote! Yet, again, less than 15 percent of the registered voters have decided the political future of the county. In the council races the percentage was even less! There are 13 people in Council District 2 who wished they had voted. There are 66 people in Council District 7 who wished they had voted! So a message to you voters, donít just vote next time, take a known non voter with you! As to you non voters, maybe, you should keep your political complaints to yourself, especially when you are talking to a voter! Your non-vote was indeed a vote, a vote for the things you complain about! Every vote counts! Every non-vote counts, it gives more power to the winning votes! Of course, you are free to sound off even if you donít vote, but sounding off and non voting just makes you a whiner! But if you complain and/or take action, vote, organize a group of voters: Then you become a person worth being heard.
Congratulations to all the voters, and thank you to all the poll workers, our real unsung election sheroes/heroes!
