Well it’s Election Day in New Jersey.
Today is the Primary Election Day here – the one where you vote within your declared party to choose a candidate for President, U.S. Senate, U.S. Congress, and certain local races.
Those readers that know me personally, and (I believe) anyone who reads this blog more than once, are fully aware that I am an outspoken proponent of fully making use of our right to vote.
To me it is much more than a right, it is a responsibility.
That being said – for the first time in my memory, I have heard a reason not to vote that I understand and can accept. You see, today someone that I respect told me they were not voting because there was no one running at the top of the ‘ticket’ opposing the incumbent, and they would not vote for that person, no matter what.
And I do indeed understand and respect that.
