“People like food. You could appeal to their stomachs, or have a local celebrity signing autographs. It’s a shame that you have to make it exciting for people to do their civic duty.”
“Have the pool as the primary election place.”
“Advertise more. I saw a sign at one of the voting places, but that’s the only way I knew about it. I didn’t hear anything on TV or radio.”
“Probably inform voters better in the paper who the candidates are. People aren’t informed very well.”
