Voting these days is completely different than in days go bye. It is easier to mail in a ballot than go to a polling place. That said, it costs 91 cents to mail in a ballot this time. I took my ballot to a polling place today and noticed other people were doing the same. But, I would agree voting turnout is probably low. It's easier to complain about things than actually vote for change, assuming voting changes anything.
