Let’s move school elections to November

Liberal journalist Frosty Troy gave a talk to about 150 Garfield County Democrats yesterday, Robert Barron reports in the Enid News and Eagle.

“We’re lucky to turn out 50 percent of our registered voters, that is shameful,” he said. “Voting is the price you pay for living in the greatest country in the world. We are the only nation in the world that considers education an expense rather than an investment.”

I’m not sure about that last sentence, but I do agree with Mr. Troy about low voter turnout. As I’ve written before, part of the problem is that many voters simply don’t know when school-board and school-bond elections are held. It’s time to move school elections to November.
