In the final analysis it is the "informed" voter that comes out to vote. Putting the City election in even years may return more votes for the candidates, but won't bring out more informed voters. Do we really want uninformed voters casting ballots for the sake of casting ballots, because the voter just happens to be in the voting both and that there are candidates that just happen to be on the ballot, so they might as well vote? I don't think so!

I don't see it that folks aren't educated/informed I think the challenge is folks don't pay attention in off General Election years. "out of sight out of mind" or they don't realize how important the local elections really are. Look at the stats even for the general election years, voting stats are down. I think it has a lot to do with the fact across the board people are dissatisfied with the leaders.

MrCommonSense, this has nothing to do with the 'Slick 6'. Cape Coral has been asking about even year elections long before they were elected to council. It is the Supervisor of Elections that does not support even year elections in Cape Coral.
ITS NOT THE INFORMED VOTER THAT CAME OUT LAST ELECTION,IT WAS ALL THE UNION VOTERS AND NOT MUCH ELSE.AS FOR BEING UNINFORMED I DONT THINK THAT IS TRUE,ITS MORE OF ONCE YOU VOTE YOU ARE FORGOTTEN ABOUT,TAKE A LOOK AT THE PUPPETS WE HAVE NOW UNION ELECTED AND UNION RUN AND TO H#LL WITH WHAT THE PEOPLE THINK.
