Once again we hear everywhere the lament: “Voter turnout too low.”
A crazy idea has been fermenting in my noggin for years.
The people need an incentive to show up to vote, say for instance a chance to have their name (registered voter card or separate entry form) entered after they vote for a chance to have a street, park, school or other public building in their municipality named after them. (Yours truly naturally ineligible).
I know, crazy. And there is probably some silly electoral bylaw or other rule against it.
