Famous quotes containing the word ballots:

    When people put their ballots in the boxes, they are, by that act, inoculated against the feeling that the government is not theirs. They then accept, in some measure, that its errors are their errors, its aberrations their aberrations, that any revolt will be against them.

    John Kenneth Galbraith (b. 1908)
