This likely will be my last Diary about candidates before election day. Very few people seem to be reading them and I've got better things to do. No one seems interested in issues and policies this time around, or even in checking whether what they've heard on TV or read on social media is anywhere near the truth. When I started voting a few decades ago, the only reliable source for information on candidates was the League of Women Voters information published by the Times Herald. Now we have the internet ~ in just a few minutes you can find out exactly where candidates stand on the issues, and check outlandish statements on social media against reliable news sources and unedited videos. But I haven't met a lot of voters willing to do that. Well, remember, an uneducated electorate gets what it deserves.
