Did You Vote Today?

If yours is a state that's having primaries, that is. Did you? If not, why not? I did. At 5:04 I was voter #42 out of a possible 988. I'd like to say the apathy in my area astounds me only sadly it does not. Not any more. That's about the norm for a primary. There might have been double the voter turnout in a major election but rarely more than that. Why have we, as a society, stopped caring? Stopped trying to make a difference? Become content to let the status quo stand, complaining but not bothering? It took me all of four minutes from the time I parked my car to the time I was back in it. Not really a big inconvenience, was it? Pathetic, people. Just pathetic.
