- About Benton Park
The basic assumption of our form of government is that elected officials, whether they be Presidents, Congressmen, State Governors, City Councilmen, or BPNA Board members, have the wisdom and desire to represent the interests of the members of that organization. This system of government works best if the entire membership is involved in the elective process and that they are well informed.
In actual practice only about half the eligible voters are registered to vote in general elections and often less than half of them actually participate in any given election. Thus often less than one quarter of eligible voters are involved the elective process.
A single individual’s influence on a National election may seem insignificant. On a Statewide level a single vote may be slightly more significant. However on a local level, such as for City Council or Neighborhood Board members, elections have often been decided upon only a few votes. Our local government often has the greatest influence on our day to day lives. Thus each vote counts!
