(A)PATHETIC (52)

As in, the 52%* of British Columbia's eligible voters who failed to turn out to the polls for the election. Talk about democracy inaction.

For the record, I voted NDP and YES (both choices lost by wide margins). I wasn't happy with either, but at least I've earned my right to grumble. Unlike 52% of my fellows.


* Not 62%, as I originally posted. Piggy can't do math. Apologies to that extra 10% of the electorate who did, in fact, exercise their right to vote.

  1. I was surprised by the low turnout as well!
    And yes, we voted NDP too.
