Save the date: Nov. 7
It is said that voters get the government they deserve, and last week’s mayoral primary proved it.
Only about 440,000 Democrats bothered to cast ballots, or about 14 percent of the registered 3.1 million.
The favored excuse — Mayor de Blasio was the prohibitive favorite — isn’t a very good one. There is a favorite in every sporting contest, too, but they play the game anyway and often the underdog is the winner.
That can’t happen in politics if people don’t vote. Let’s not make the same mistake in November.
