A short dictionary definition of "scofflaw" is "a contemptuous law violator." In practice it is often used to refer to a husband who stops paying his court-ordered alimony or child support. But, the term "scofflaw" can also be applied to US citizens who have the right to vote in elections, but who neglect to do so. In our democracy, voting is the most basic civic duty. Unless blocked by voter suppression, illness, or other understandable reason, voting should never be neglected.
Given all the current frustration with our national government, one primary cause of bad or weak government is the almost 40% of eligible voters, the scofflaw voters, who for whatever reason or rational, choose not to vote .
