Two-thirds of registered voters in Valley likely to sit out primary

If you go to the polls to vote in Tuesday’s primary in the Mahoning Valley, don’t worry about long lines.

Area election officials expect about two-thirds of registered voters to not bother casting ballots in the primary.

“It will be extremely light; we’ll struggle to get to 30 percent,” said Adam Booth, Columbiana County Board of Elections director. “I’d be shocked if it crept up to the mid-30s or into the 40s. There’s nothing driving” turnout.

Thomas McCabe, Mahoning County Board of Elections director, is expecting turnout in Mahoning to be 32 percent, “and that could be high. That’s being generous.”

In Trumbull County, turnout for Tuesday’s primary will be about 30 percent to 35 percent, said Kelly Pallante, its board of elections director.

The top reason for the expected poor turnout, McCabe and Booth said, is no Democratic presidential primary. President Barack Obama is running unopposed.

ARE YOU BRAINWASHED AND DO NOT KNOW IT ?

ARE ROMNEY s Super Pacs CONFUSING YOU ? ARE 'THEY CONTROLLING WHO TO VOTE FOR ?
"Restore America", "Restore Our Future" et all, = Romney's 'super PACs"=
Murderous attack dogs WITH PRIVILEGE AND LICENCE TO LIE, DECEIVE, KILL REPUTATIONS WITH IMPUNITY.
PAID BY ANONYMOUS BILLIONAIRES and MILLONAIRES .
They can NOT be dragged into court since  The  Federal Election Commission  will  levy only modest  fines.
Ron Paul's Pac has a commercial calling Santorun a fake conservative. This is in content A DUPLICATE of the Romney's Commercial ! Coincidental ?
Romney and Paul playing it like they did in Michigan. Will you allow it ?
These perfidious Pacs depend, bank on the natural DECENCY of the american people that KNOW SLANDER IS SEVERELY PUNISHABLE BY LAW , so that the defamation against Santorum "must be true" . WELL, IT IS NOT !
WHY THE BILLIONAIRES are trying to ram The Former Mormon Bishop down Our
Throats ?
If the Pac succeeds in purchasing the nomination for Romney, Obama will have 4 more glorious years. Investigate for yourselves.
Romney is THE GREATEST flip flopper that ever was !

Rick Santorum respects us enough to tell us the real truth. Common sense tells us: It takes MORE  than 1 ( ONE ) vote to pass a law.
Ron Paul is living proof that voting alone results in failed causes. He used his 1 vote against legislation again and again…and the laws he opposed continued to pass anyway. 
WAKE UP AMERICA, FOLLOW YOUR HEART. BELIEVE !
RICK SANTORUM IS THE ONE WILL UNSEAT OBAMA

If you are frustrated by the "same-old-same-old" politics, please consider going to the polls, requesting a Libertarian Party ballot, and writing in John Fockler for US Senate. We need 500 votes in Ohio to get on the November ballot and make sure there's an option to the usual gang of idiots.

You do have an alternative to the same old white men that have been running things in this city and county for decades.
Ask for a Green Party ballot on Tuesday, Howard Markert is running for Mahoning County Commissioner (he is half latino) and Jim Villani for County Recorder and Joseph Rosario DeMare write in candidate for US Senate (he needs 500 votes to be on the November ballot)
.

Yes I can spell Socialism, and unlike you I also understand its principles and Obama is far from one.
