Letter – Seniors’ secret revealed

Well, we are going to the polls again and again it is predicted that seniors will do most of the voting.

Well, we are going to the polls again and again it is predicted that seniors will do most of the voting. So I want to let out a little secret. We seniors go into that booth armed with a clothespin. If you work it right you can be in and out in 30 seconds,  back into fresh air. The reason I’m letting this little secret out is that many of us are now having trouble remembering  how to draw that cross, or even to find the pencil. So if younger people do not vote we may well end up over time without a working democracy. Don’t know who to vote for? No problem. Ask any senior.
