I am an independent voter who votes for the person I feel is best suited for the position they are seeking. Allowing the “party-only” ballot will disenfranchise not just me, but a large portion of the voting public. So no, I don’t agree with a party-only ballot and I also believe that it is against our state Constitution, also the voters selected this process. Why are the Democrat and Republican politicians attempting to change yet again, what voters have already selected?
I really don’t appreciate that campaigns are only limited to “Republican or Democratic” and that we don’t give voice to the independent voter!
As for moving the primary up to March, that would be OK only if the campaign signs are removed and not replaced until just before the general election. I also feel that the commercials on TV and media need to be restricted to a reasonable timetable.
