Sometimes voting isn’t a question of supporting your candidate or a feeling of civic duty or responsibility. It can sometimes stem from familial obligations.
John Blodgett, 61, is a programmer analyst for MU. He didn’t feel too strongly about any of the candidates or issues on the ballot Tuesday.
“There wasn’t anything controversial or exciting, really,” he said.
He has a good reason, however, for making an appearance at the Forum Christian Church to vote.
“Well, my wife is president of the League of Women Voters,” he said. “If I didn’t vote, she’d probably get upset.”
