By now you’ve probably seen the campaign ad slamming Secretary of State candidate Josh Zakim’s spotty voting record, focusing particularly on the fact that he didn’t vote in Democratic primaries when John Kerry was running for president or Deval Patrick from governor.

But as Milton Valencia reports in today’s Globe, a number of those “No Show Zamkim” 16 missed votes were Newton elections or special city elections from prior to when he changed his voting address to Boston in 2011, (including time when he was attended college in Pennsylvania).

Should Zakim’s failure to vote in city elections, or elections in general, be held against Zakim? Does any of this matter to your decision if you’re voting in the Sept. 4 Democratic primary?
