I saw the number and cringed, just like some of you did.

On Tuesday, only 13.39 percent of registered voters in La Porte County bothered to go to the polls in the city elections. These elections were to determine each party's candidates for Mayor and City Council in the November general election. In many cases, because candidates would most likely be unopposed in November, this election put people into office, for all intents and purposes.
