While I have a general interest in the ICE and its activities the reason that I do not vote is simple.
Each year the voting papers come in and, intent on voting, I browse through the candidates to read their statements. I then realize that I don't know any of them or anything about them to allow me to prefer one candidate from the next.
How do I know that by voting for a certain candidate my vote will be to the benefit of the ICE or not.
How can I fairly choose candidate A over candidate B?
Instead I generally decide to abstain - which I suggest is the real reason for the relatively low voting returns.
