Municipal elections Oct 18th 2010.

Should you vote? Common wisdom is that everyone should come out to vote and we bemoan the low turnout for these elections.

 My belief is that it is better to have a smaller % of knowledgeable voters than a huge turnout where people just vote on name recognition or whoever is at the top of the list alphabetically.

 I’m also not a fan of single issue or “throw them all out” candidates. It is important that people running for public office have an awareness and interest in a wide range of topics.

 So please try and vote, but also please try and educate yourself about the issues and the relevant candidates.
