Does Low Voting Turn Out Signify Ignorance and Apathy?

Does yesterday’s low voting turn out signify ignorance and apathy?

I don’t know, and I don’t care.

No, seriously, lots of people are complaining, apparently surprised by yesterday’s low voting turn out.

First of all, it was a primary. C’mon, folks, we can barely get people excited about the general elections these days, let alone primaries. What’d you expect?

Second, I figure it this way: either people are so disaffected – or feel so disenfranchised – from the past six years, no matter what their politics, that they just can’t get excited about it any more.

Honestly, when it comes right down to it, I don’t think anybody in this country any longer believes that their individual vote makes a blind bit of difference.

Do you?
