I despise the democratic party but have voted in democratic primary elections to choose the weaker candidate, by doing that I give up my chance to vote in the republican primary as you have to choose one. Sounds like TN has a similar primary system.

    "A primary election is an election in which registered voters select a candidate that they believe should be a political party's candidate for elected office to run in the general election. They are also used to choose convention delegates and party leaders. Primaries are state-level and local-level elections that take place prior to a general election. Tennessee utilizes an open primary system, in which registered voters do not have to be members of a party to vote in that party's primary. However, voters must affiliate with a party at the primary polling location or declare their allegiance to the party.[1][2][3][4]"
    We have a jungle primary here;Edwin Edwards gift to himself and Dem party. One issue we have is so many egos got the current Dem Governor elected; that and millions of out of state money

    An update on this: Orrock said he was withdrawing the bill, but as of today, it is still active, being printed and awaiting committee assignment. Now he is saying he will withdraw it once the session starts. Something is very fishy here...

    That is odd. Potential party jumper?

    What a joke! A "staunch supporter" never would have wrote this crap bill let alone submit it.

    Nine states have caucuses instead of primaries. Two of those are hybrid. Kentucky has a Republican caucus and Democratic primary. Washington has the reverse.

    At first I misread that as "circuses."

Then, he introduced the bill on Dec. 27 and withdrew it the next day. That just doesn't make sense to me. There has to be something else behind this story.
    They should collect signatures and throw him out of the office. Like folks in Colorado did - quite a while ago. An no one repeated what they did since.

    Registering only affects what you do at primary. At some times I was registering to vote down ultimate pieces of garbage. At other times I registered (differently it happened to be) to make sure best candidate is not kicked out of race.

    And at election itself everybody gets the same ballot. So I register differently if the need is at next primary. And to whatever level I hate both of two candidates from two major competing gangs, I do not vote for someone else whom I may love but who I know will not win anyway. Because that would be to just throw away my vote, instead of using it for lesser of two bads.

    I came to an opinion that nobody who IS in the government or who works "for the government" (i.e. whose salary comes from taxpayer's money) should be allowed to vote. Also, no one who receives "government handouts".

    I know I didn't make many friends here by saying that. However, I don't know other sure way to prevent govenment from getting worse and worse.

    Didn't we fight a small revolution to get past that kind of thing?

    Virginia played a role in that, too.
