Letter to the Editor - Exercise your right to vote: June 16

Windsor - posted Jul, 09 2013

I'd like to ask all registered voters in Windsor: Is your opinion on the budget reflected in the past three referendums on our town’s budget? Your vote, or your lack of a vote, affects all residents of Windsor. While those who voted are commendable, it is a shame that a mere 14½ % of our total number of voters went to the polls on June 25 to vote in the third referendum. The budget failed by only 135 votes. In a town of 20,242 registered voters, this is a very small number – less than 1%! Is this the result you wanted? If so, vote. If not, vote. Let’s all get out there and vote. Let’s be sure that the results of the July 16 referendum are based on the majority of registered voters not on the majority of a small percentage of people! Please vote on July 16. Being a registered voter means nothing if we do not exercise our right and vote. For more information on the budget and on polling places, please visit the town’s website at: www.townofwindsorct.com. To suggest ideas for getting out the vote, please contact WindsorCTVotes, a non-partisan organization dedicated to increasing civic engagement, at www.windsorctvotes.org. Thank you. Marcia Hinckley, Windsor
