According to unofficial results from the Secretary of State’s office, between 30 – 35% of registered voters actually voted in various statewide contests last Saturday. Would our esteemed governor have been replaced or even seriously challenged if we, the voters, had shown up and registered our dissatisfaction with his performance in office? Maybe. I doubt it. Over 1,000,000 votes were cast in the gubernatorial race. Of the people who chose not to vote, it isn’t terribly likely that a sufficiently large majority of people would have cast ballots against Jindal to topple him from his throne. Nevertheless, it does seem like a lost opportunity to send a message to him and those like him that not everyone in Louisiana is willing to let global corporations and their lapdogs run our state and our country into the ground.
