Our perspective

What we see depends mainly on what we look for. Sir John Lubbock

As free citizens in a political democracy, we have a responsibility to be interested and involved in the affairs of the human community, be it at the local or the global level. Paul Wellstone

Commentary - voter suppression

After the primary, I suggested there would be efforts to suppress voter participation in the general election:

[comparing the last two mayoral primaries] the same number of voters like Ms. Longrie, no matter how many people vote; while the same proportion of voters like Mr. Rossbach. Look for the Longrie campaign to try to suppress turnout in the general election, while Mr. Rossbach (whom I support) will be working on increasing participation.

Making the campaign feel ugly and dirty is a classic suppression technique. Have we noticed any signs of this?
