In a Congressional district where the campaigning has been comparatively non-existent, local voters have probably found themselves lulled into a fog. But before we know it, Nov. 2 will suddenly emerge from the mist, revealing itself to what hopefully won't be a disillusioned and apathetic public.
The League of Women Voters Glendale/Burbank has tried to drum up interest in myriad state ballot measures, perhaps sensing that the district lacks the incumbent-challenger tussling that's been all over the headlines in other areas. It's sad that that's what seems to be required to get voter attention these days, or that we have to use editorial space to acknowledge it, but here we are, just a few weeks from the election.
So here it is, our own attempt to persuade apathetic residents to, at the very least, take just one cumulative hour to review the ballot measures and candidate statements. In the absence of any in-your-face politicking that was so prominent for the June special election for Assembly, it may seem as if Nov. 2 is an election for "them," not "you."
