Voting: Where you Live vs. Where you Work? (Counties)

    When filling out my ballot, I realized that many of the local initiatives and candidates concerned the local economy. This is the county where I live; hold property, go to the grocery store, etc. etc. Where my kids would go to school, if I had any. However, in my particular county, most of the initiatves involved job creation, and the candidates were very economy-focused. Schools and property were on the backburner to the economy.

    I felt a little odd filling out a ballot that didn't really concern me. Whether or not there are jobs and a good economy where I live is rather unrelated to myself having a job out of the area. This is the first time I have lived in a different county from where I worked.

    Wonder if any of you all had thoughts on this?
