  1. According to the El Paso County Elections voter turnout was around 15,000. I’m surprised some morons actually voted against the two propositions.

  2. Most of el voters are clueless, f.k.g They treat picking a canidate or a proposition like it’s a multiple choice test. They couldn’t get 25% of an ABCD exam!!! If I need to explain what that means, YOU’RE one of THEM!
