The Daily Word in election, Tex-Mex-Thai and "The Thrill-Kill State"

The Daily Word

Voter turnout in Albuquerque municipal elections is dismal. According to this City chart, less than 14 percent of registered voters rocked the ballot box in 2011; in 2009, less than 30 percent of registered voters fulfilled their civic duty. The business of running and strategizing financial growth, allotment of social services and general rule-making in our fair city are at the heart of these elections, and you should care about that. With an anti-choice special election and Bosque development planning on the horizon, you should also care who represents your voice on issues ranging from reproductive justice to environmental planning. So scope the Alibi's premasticated 2013 municipal election digest before heading to the polls. ... and please use your voice, citizens.
