Not much interest in the 2014 elections

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Democrats or Republicans? Control of Congress is at stake this November, but the majority of registered voters are not that interested in this year’s election.

According to a Gallup Poll, 53% of voters are less enthusiastic about this election than previous elections. Four years ago, the poll result was the complete opposite, 52% of voters were enthusiastic about the 2010 election.

Political consultants Tony Cignoli told 22News the interest will go up as we get closer to November.

“They will tune back in. They know it affects them. They’ll watch the campaigns become more localized. It won’t be the general I’m mad at Washington feeling, but much more so, I’ve got to get involved in my own congressional or my own senatorial, because it affects me here at home where I live,” said Gignoli.

In Massachusetts, voters will be voting for all major state elected positions, including the office of governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, and Senate and House seats.
