Apathy, East Tennessee Style
Knoxville voters are apathetic
Perhaps most disturbing are the low turnout numbers for such a history-making election where Knoxvillians will elect a series of new leaders and the first newly-elected full-term Mayor in eight years. People can gripe all they like about low-turnout being due to it being an odd year, but considering how well-publicized these elections have been, there is no excuse but sorry and disgusting apathy for an estimated eight percent voter turnout.
