The Clarion-Ledger Editorial, 2/27/8

Mississippi voters will go to the polls in the March 11 party primary elections in less than two weeks to choose a new congressional delegation – and voter apathy about that task appears to be at stunning levels.

In places where politics is normally “cussed and discussed,” in recent months the more likely subject of the day is that of the ongoing judicial bribery investigations.

Yet that apathy could very well not be apathy at all. It could be confusion or ballot battle fatigue because voters face so many different choices on different dates.
