MUSTANG POLLING




[ FOR BETTER RESOLUTION, CLICK ON IMAGE ]

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS CORRECTED POSTING. THE PREVIOUS POSTING HAD SOME HTML ERRORS.

The old expression that one votes with their feet simply means that they elected to turn their back on some person, place or thing which disinterested them. If you did not walk, drive or skate TO one of the many voter registration locations vote.charlestoncounty.org/ in Charleston County by or before October 7, not even your feet will be allowed to vote on November 7, if you were not already registered to vote.

Failure to register and vote is right up there with running your vehicle without oil. It couldn't be easier to do nor dumber to ignore.

The excuse that you're disillusioned about politics suggests laziness more than a critical review the candidates and issues. The presumption that your vote doesn't count is clearly disproved by increasingly close races. A recent City of Charleston Council election had the candidates for one seat separated by only 2 or 3 votes in general election and two runoff votes. This election will have candidate from several splinter parties on the ballot as well as the two main ones. As always there are write in opportunities for every office so you can pencil in Mickey Mouse if you wish. Just don't write in Mustang Rolling, please.

Low voter turnout is the scandal of the Republic. On November 7, every office from Governor down to the school boards is up for election. We don't care who you vote for, well, we really do, but we ain't saying, just go out and vote. So if you screwed up this time around, please register to vote at your earliest opportunity so that you can be a part of the process and invest yourself into the fate of your local and state governments.

The Charleston County Board of Elections has on line help, instructions and directions.

Thanks, Jared. What if they gave an election and nobody came?

No vote = no complaining. That's my philosophy. If you didn't bother to make your voice heard when you had the chance, too bad, so sad.

We're sorry for the irregularities, but BLOGGER has been having colic today and we had to capture the comments and post them ourselves.

On which road in Awendaw did you find the Rooskies ? I want to make sure that I keep my distance.
