Voting is a right not everyone always exercises. Tell us if you vote — why or why not?
Voter turnout is never 100 percent. So, we want to know why some people decide not to vote. In Stow's last election, which was a special election in August, only 6,660 went to the booth. Granted, Issue 2, a 6.57-mill operating levy was the only item on the ballot in Stow, but it's still a low turnout. With several heated races on the ballot, voter turnout is expected to be much greater. But, we still want to know why non-voters chose to avoid the polls. So, take our poll and then comment about why you don't vote or what reasons you'd give to non-voters about the importance of casting a ballot. Important Nov. 8 links:
