None Of Them Will Save You, Only We Can Save Ourselves


11.04.14 - There is much excitement around the upcoming elections in Oakland. The citizens of our fair city will vote on November 4th for who their mayor and city council members will be. But we must remember that a clear majority of registered Oakland voters will spend November 4th doing anything, but voting. During the 2010 election, only 44% of registered Oakland voters cast their ballots. That same year, only 209,000 out of 390,000 residents registered in the first place. This mean that less than ¼ of the Oakland population voted. In case you missed it, this clearly indicates that most people with the ability to vote preferred not to.
