In another thread there are some Who think the locals should make the rules that affect their area. How do you define the locals ? Is it a matter of numbers of the population or of acres of area ? In my Township there is a village. There are about 500 in the village. Less than half of that in the Township. Very little that happens in the Township affects the villagers yet they can vote in the township elections. On the other hand almost everything that happens in the village affects those in the township but they cannot vote in the village elections. Are the villagers locals to the Township ? Are those from the township not local to the village ?
