Votes would be disenfranchised

Monday, April 15, 2019

An article in the Southeast Missourian on Friday, March 29, stated, “The Missouri House advanced a plan to abolish open primary elections. ... People not affiliated with a party could not vote for candidates in a primary election. ...”

I urge every registered voter to join me and contact their representatives and senators and express outrage at this attempt to disenfranchise thousands of voters.

Often one party will not have a choice of candidate, but another party will. We should not have to join a specific political party in order to select a candidate to run in a general election.
