Election math

Voter apathy, voter disenchantment likely due to lack of votes cast

The letter about political math in the June 28 paper leaves me needing to comment.

To suggest that the 38.5 per cent of registered voters who did not vote did so because they were satisfied with the status quo is at very least misleading, and most certainly laughable.

Part of this figure is no doubt due to voter apathy, but I submit that a good part of it is also due to voter disenchantment.

I know that I am not alone in being fed up with an appalling lack of quality leadership at many levels, and in listening to politicians with their own agenda, rather than one which represents the needs and problems of our times.
