Open Thread: Turn Out Context Edition

by at 4:00 pm.

I’m not going to lie. Some of the candidates DON’T want more Lowellians to participate. They will lie through their teeth, but they want the outcome they desire. Elections are about winning. Democracy can come out of governing. Or, so they delude themselves to believe.

You and I know, that once they WIN, they govern to WIN AGAIN! Democracy goes out the window, unless we grab it back.

A few years back, we collected and analyzed some data. (h/t Dr. Marcus Luna) Unfortunately, the opportunities to have municipal preliminaries, in this century, were squandered. So, we only have so much data to interpolate from.

Let’s not moan or cheer any turn out numbers from tonight. Unless, we take it with a grain of salt and a heavy dose of context.



Update: My turn out wish list for today -

Please cast a ballot for this Open Thread.
