Digging around in the public record, I find that my home parish (Rapides Parish, LA) has 84,174 registered voters. The voters in this parish are primarily Democratic by a small margin, 34K to 27K, but a significant number of voters doesn't list a party, 21K are neither Dem or Rep.
However, in the last big gubernatorial election, where we elect a bunch of state and parish offices (to include the Sheriff), only about 28,000 votes were cast in that election. Only a third of those people who registered to vote bothered to actually go to the polls and make their vote count.
I'm just sayin'.
