Letter: Oregon needs new primary system (May 11, 2022)
May 11, 2022
I am not alone in refusing to be identified as either a Republican or Democrat.
Right now I don’t like either party, so I am registered as nothing ... independent.
Therefore, my ballot lists only a few judges and Labor Commission candidates, which on my ballot are all incumbents and have no challengers. How unexciting.
I feel disenfranchised because I can’t vote for candidates for either the Senate or the House of Representatives. Who, then, can represent me?
We need open ranked elections, in which all the candidates are listed on all the ballots so all voters can participate...
