Where Have All The Voters Gone?


10% turnout, enough said. Year after year every media source,blog or newspaper have asked people to get out and vote and the turnout gets worse all the time. I really don't think you will ever get people involved in the process because they just don't feel it has any impact on their personal lives. We can just be grateful for the ones that do take the time to vote and thank them for using that right that so many others toss away

It's because the voter roles haven't been purged in awhile if ever. A lot of those who are registered, former SU students for instance aren't in the area anymore. Or renters. Someone moves to Salisbury, rents a residence and registers to vote. In a year or so they move out of city limits and don't vote because they aren't eligible. Just because you are registered doesn't mean you are eligible.
Why the mayor and/or council hasn't seen to it that the voter lists are gone over is a complete mystery. With such a large rental area it is not only imperative but prudent to go over the lists every few years.

In an ideal world an app would prevent anyone who DID NOT vote from posting a comment.I was in the unopposed part of Salisbury but I still showed up and voted.That might look foolish to some,but to me voting is a big deal.

the city is mostly rentals. 80%. Most of those people do not vote. If you want more votes we need more home owner ship.

Should he not be focusing on the job he was just elected to do? There should be a recall.

I'm not is Salisbury but if my choice of candidate is running unopposed, I do the same as 9:42. What 9:42 did is what you are supposed to do, because it shows you are still an active voter. Someone who hasn't voted in the past few elections, should be purged.

I voted Ron Jeremy for Mayor and Jenna Jameson opposing Laura Mitchell.

Jim Ireton has admitted that he doesn't want to serve Salisbury as a Council Member so it is prudent that something be done to remove him and put Roger Mazullo in that seat.

If they would just pay more to vote a lot of people would vote more often. A ten dollar gift card for Target or even Chik-fil-a would tell me a lot more about a candidate than some tired radio spot. A full ballot with all those supporters outside the polls with cards in hand would help me with the families groceries or some clothes for the youngest one. Let's try it at least once.
