21. There's certainly has been a strong stench

of bullshite wafting around.

Those "young" people who didn't vote are too self centered to realize there's a Global Climate Change Crisis hovering over our Planet..

Congratulations, Voters(and NON voters). You Just Made This Climate Denier the Most Powerful Senator on the Environment. http://www.newrepublic.com/article/120134/climate-change-denier-james-inhofe-lead-environment-committee

And, they're proud of their ignorance.. writing letters to whine about there being no reason to vote

I actually know of a lot of younger peeps here on Kauai who voted on Tuesday.. Our Island was the highest turnout in the state! Proud of my Island.. They are concerned about our Environment on the Island and the whole beautiful Planet.

"LIHUE — After tallying the highest voter turnout in a primary election in 12 years back in August, Kauai led the state in Tuesday’s general election with the highest percentage of registered voters making their way to the polls.

Out of 41,869 registered voters, 57.4 percent (or 24,043) cast their vote, down from 62.9 percent in the 2012 presidential election.

“Of course, we always would like to have that number be much higher,” said County Elections Administrator Lyndon Yoshioka."

Christian Domingues, an avid voter, said professional surfer and mayoral hopeful Dustin Barca was an intriguing draw in his unsuccessful bid for office.

"Aria Juliet Castillo, communications director of Kauai Young Democrats, said she thinks this past year has proven Kauai is very engaged, “since we had the highest increase in voter registration and highest voter turnout on both elections this year.”

It's the Environment, Stupid.
