Elections teach us about ourselves.
The local option elections in three communities asked a simple question. In addition to answering yes by 3-to-2 margins in each town, other deeper insight is possible – or at least deeper speculation.
After the vote, many folks who I encountered remarked with surprise about the margin of victory, particularly in Vine Grove.
Because Vine Grove’s a smaller community, we often view it as quaint and perhaps parochial in its ways. Consider, however, the nature of this community.
