Comment on ‘Voter apathy greatest threat to Territory democracy’ by Richard Prisgrove.

There is another way you could vote … with your feet!
I too became totally dismayed with the ever increasing bigotry and racism, having lived nearly all my life in Alice Springs. So I packed up the family and left.
Did that a little over 30 years ago now and haven’t looked back.
Has lots of benefits that come with feet-voting as well: salaries, services and facilities are on the whole better outside the Territory. As are less stressors, less narrow-mindedness and less discrimination, to mention but a few.
Additionally, costs of travel, living and access to current medical facilities are so much improved by voting with your feet.
Too easy; just vote with your feet.
