I wish all those wringing their hands over the low turnout in the recent primary would stop accusing some of us who chose not to vote as failing to do our civic duty or of enabling corrupt officials to remain in office.
I very much appreciate and exercise my right to vote, for whatever combination of candidates I think best. Yet I have never voted in an Indiana primary because I routinely split my vote in general elections and refuse to declare a political party.
I do consider it my civic duty to vote and am well aware of the sacrifices that have been made so that I can enjoy this privilege, but I also think I should not have some choices eliminated for me.
I can think for myself, thank you.
