As he prepares to run for a third term next year, voter turnout has West Lafayette Mayor John Dennis concerned.
Less than a third of registered Tippecanoe County voters cast ballots in this year’s elections – and that number leaves out the one-third of eligible voters who aren’t even registered.
So might a small minority of the county pick next year’s winners?
A lot of this week’s program is spent talking about the ramifications of an election cycle so predictable voters appear to have stopped caring.
Does Mayor Dennis believe municipal races – which mean much more than congressional races – can re-stoke those fires next year? And is that even his job?
