Lance Bernard: Few voters? That’s OK

June 10, 2014 

Every election cycle we read how deplorable it is that more people didn’t vote.

Personally, I feel the opposite. Leland Yee, arrested for gun trafficking and money laundering, finished third out of eight.

One wonders what the results would have been if more of the uninformed electorate had voted.

More to the point, though, the fewer people that vote, the more my vote counts.

Hopefully, someday no one will vote except me. Then everyone elected will be the one I want!
