Dateline: Eagle County, Colorado – Tuesday, November 3rd 2015
Q.) What are the Voter Demographics of the folks who voted in Tuesdays General Election?
So what reasonable conclusions can be drawn from this data? (Special Thanks to Eagle County Clerk and Recorder – Teak Simonton for this data)
1.) Especially Young Voters – don’t seem to see (themselves) as much effected by the outcome of these elections…else, they would be voting more as a Group, right?
2.) ECT will insist most of the Private Property WEALTH in Eagle County today, is not owned by the young folks, rather the opposite – our Seniors own/control the majority of it.
3.) Hence, our Seniors seem themselves as being more effected by the election (re: Ballot Tax questions) than do the younger folks. So they VOTE!
It is interesting that (by almost 2-1) the age 60+ voters out voted the 50+ voters in Eagle County today.
It is left to the ECT readers to decide if our Seniors are more (Patriotic?) than our younger voters are (as a group). ECT has a lot of photos (over the years) of folks who attend the Memorial Day and Veterans Day ceremonies at Freedom Park in Edwards.
Interesting, isn’t it?
