Why do you think it’s important to vote in local elections?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on April 3, 2007
“It’s important because our city government should represent the will of the people who live here rather than a few individuals who feel they have the power to run the city.”
“As far as politics go, it’s on the local level that they affect us immediately.”
“So you have the right to complain about the local government. If you don’t vote, then you don’t have the right to complain.”
“Because your voice counts. That one vote can make a difference, especially when it’s a smaller election.”
