ELECTION 2020: Six weeks ahead of presidential primary, 34th District Democrats launch info HQ

checkbox.jpgIn three weeks, ballots hit the mail for our state’s March 10th presidential primary, which, this time, counts. If you’re thinking about voting Democratic, the 34th District Democrats want you to know they have just added a section to their website with info about how the primary and caucuses will work this year. They’re not endorsing a candidate, so this isn’t info about candidates – just about the process, which starts with the March 10th primary and April 26th legislative-district-level caucus. The Secretary of State’s office also has an FAQ about the primary, plus the official list of who’ll be on the ballot.

    I really hate the way the system is set up in this state.  For one, I consider myself an independent.  If declared as such, I would not be allowed to vote in the primary.  And then I’m required to vote only for candidates in the party I’m registered with.   This really sucks and restricts my choices as a voter.  I think that one should be able to register as an independent, and with that option be able to vote for any candidate of any party.  I wonder if this might also help shake up the extreme partisanship that exists both state and nation-wide, as both Democrats and Republicans might have to inject some common sense into their ever more extreme stances in order to woo declared independent voters, who are currently an unofficial and uncounted third party – albeit a growing one.

    So you don’t want to have anything to do with a Party, and yet you think you have a right to chose who that party’s nominee should be? I wish we still had caucuses — and that everyone would actually learn civics in our schools and how our democracy actually functions. If folks only show up in November, once every four years, and then complain that they don’t like their choices — then they’re part of the problem. Democracy requires work and attention.

Sorry, comment time is over.
