Fed up voters to stay home
By Byron McNutt

MANY PEOPLE consider the Nov. 6 General Election the most important in our nation’s history, so why does a nationwide USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll predict that as many as 90 million eligible voters are unlikely to vote? There are many reasons.

One: Because of the Electoral College System, people know in advance that their individual vote (the popular vote) in the presidential race  doesn’t count. If you vote Republican in states like California and New York, it won’t matter in regard to the outcome.
