However, what about those who elect not to participate in the election process? There could be several reasons for this.
- They are not interested in politics
- They did not conduct their research on the various candidates beforehand and feel that they should not vote
- They are so fed up with the current system that they do not vote out of spite
- Or the current electorate is satisfied with the incumbent's work. If the candidate is running unopposed, then the spot has been secured
Which bring us to the mayoral elections of PWC. In Occoquan, Haymarket and Quantico, the mayors pretty much have their positions guaranteed to them by the time the May 6 elections roll around. It would seem that the voters are happy with the work their mayors are doing.
Good luck to all candidates! My favourite to win is Earnie Porta. :)
