Referendum results

Resident upset with the level of voter participation in the sports facility referendum

Why is it that everyone thinks 18 per cent of the eligible voters is fair amount of voters.

The vote should have stated that at least 51 per cent of eligible voters had to vote for the referendum to be valid.

But no, that would never happen because most of the people in this area could care less about what happens here, either in the municipal election or a referendum like we just had.

I believe that in the municipal elections we are lucky to get even 30 per cent turnout.

Too bad the minority determine results for the majority.

What is the matter with this picture?
