It seems that Solano County wants its local governments to hold their elections in even-numbered years. Why? It could save money, says Supervisors Spering and Vasquez (Feb. 23, “Fairfield-Suisun School District to consider even-year elections”). It could also mean more voters, as records show that more people vote in even-numbered years when state and federal offices are on the ballot.
Surveys reveal that more and more people are getting weary of uninspiring or unknown candidates, ballots that are three and four pages long, and propositions that defy understanding. They are simply not voting.
