Could a Referendum Increase Voter Turnout?

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

Having heard the results ff the Scotland referendum, and the amazing voter turnout of over 80 percent, I think we should explore having one on our ballot? (computer-phone?).

Let’s face it, the Sydenham-Meaford thing just isn’t working. Also, it’s a distinct possibility that voter participation may be very low amongst seniors-a large demographic.

Maybe the Municipality could jazz it up with a referendum. I guarantee a lot more people would make the effort to vote.

As usual, my comment and opinions are mainly to be taken with a grain of salt and pepper.

Yours in election fatigue (soooo many candidates),

Kate Belec, Meaford

Be the 1st to vote.
