No excuse for not voting [Letter]

June 27, 2014

A Sun poll asked non-voters what their excuse was for not showing up on Election Day ("What Maryland thinks," June 25).

Short of an emergency affecting oneself or a near relative, there are none. Maryland's non-voters are bad citizens, and The Sun should stop giving them cover.
