For the last few days, reporters, commentators, elected officials have all commented oh how high the voter turnout was . (The State Board of Elections website shows what th turnout was county by county.)
I am not sure why we are getting so excited about slightly over 1/3 of the electorate going to the polling place. Somehow the numbers tell me that even in the hottest, most exciting presidentaitl priamry in NC in decades - over 60% of the population didn't or couldn't vote.
Sort of depressing.
