Most of the people responding to this week’s Argus-Courier online poll said they were most concerned about federal, rather than state or local, issues. About 60 percent cared most about federal issues. About 25 percent were most concerned about local issues, and just 15 percent were most concerned about state issues.
Most of those polled said they were voting by mail this year — about 67 percent.
About 31 percent said they would vote at the polls, while only 2 percent said they weren’t voting at all.
Here were some of the comments.
——
“Local issues are where our votes have the most impact and where we are most impacted by our votes!”
——
“Hopefully voters will have seen that changes need to be made at local, state and federal elected offices if we want to get out of the economic quagmire that we have been in for almost 20 years.”
——
“I’m concerned about all the issues but you let me only pick one.”
­­——
“I am most concerned about the issues not spoken. The division of Americans int Republican versus Democrats ( divide and conquer) and that we as Americans tolerate such a system. Pointing fingers —who is bad and who is good will — never get us where we need to be.”
——
“Healy, Kearney, and Miller have robo-called my home and business to death. This is hugely costly. If they are elected, they will be the best politicians outside money can buy. Developer big pockets with their hands deep into them. This is most concerning.”
——
Most important election in decades. We can keep raising taxes in California and chase businesses out of the state, or choose to stop the insane spending and vote against the tax increases.”
——
“Though I’m obviously concerned about the presidential election, I realize our votes here in California won’t make any difference in the outcome. However, our votes for our local city council candidates will have a huge impact on our collective, day-to-day quality of life here in Petaluma. That’s why I voted for Healy, Miller and Kearney and I’m crossing my fingers that they were elected! I’m looking forward to an improved local economy, the Rainier crosstown connector (finally!), better streets and more civility and common sense at council meetings.”
——
“Vote to end tax and spend policies! We can’t keep chasing businesses out of California.”
