I extend my sincere thanks to the 75 percent or more of my fellow Marylanders who chose to avoid the polling places on June 24 ("Excuses aside, Maryland voter turnout an embarrassment," June 25). You have multiplied the impact of my vote significantly, and I do appreciate the increased influence. I can only hope that even more of you will stay away in future elections, upping the potency of my choices even further. I promise that I will use the opportunity to look after my self-interest.
W. Blaine Brewer, Linthicum
