There are approximately 14, 000 to 15, 000 registered voters in Park Ridge. In a typical local election (not national, or state wide) about 20% vote. That would be around 3, 000. Of those 3, 000 approximately 80% (2, 400) are over the age of 50. These are very general numbers, and what happened in the past may not hold true this time around. I guess my point is - I wish people took these local contests a little more seriously.
