      And...folks just don't see voting as useful.  I came from a small town of over 32K in Illinois (blue state).  But the state had to take over the school district, we don't even have a grocery store, businesses are fleeing like crazy, we've been on CNN for corruption & police brutality.  Everyone hates the mayor and sees him as corrupt yet only 1000 people showed up to vote last night in the primary.  Dems always run unopposed in the General.  This mayor will retain his seat with only 417 people having voted for him out of more than 32K citizens. THAT is a damn shame & disgrace.  Somehow we've got to motivate people that voting (especially local voting) has a direct impact on their lives.
