The turnout for the recent election in Glendale was low, about 24%. I think for most voters who did not bother to vote, laziness does not count (“Drayman loses City Council seat,” April 15).
But the sad reality is the mindset that it will not make a difference if Mr. X is elected and Mr. Y is not elected — our lives will be the same.
Look at the past 20 years and see how many times the candidates made promises to voters and did not fulfill them after they got to office. There is absolutely no accountability on their part to pursue what they promised before the election. And as long as it continues this way, there will be low turnout in every election.
