Most of the ‘We the people’ didn’t show up, again

It’s hard to get happy about an election when only 19.53 percent of the state’s registered voters participated, but proving that everything is relative, it’s hard to complain about the turnout in Bibb County that was 26.66 percent -- 7.13 percent over state turnout statistics. Only 16.18 percent of Houston County voters cast ballots, less than Crawford County’s 17.02 percent, Peach County’s 16.42 percent and Baldwin County’s 21.85 percent. All dismal, for sure, but everything is relative.
