It’s time for the state of Indiana to consider changing the way it allows Hoosiers to select candidates for general elections.
While we understand the allure of allowing voters to go to polling places to support candidates in a primary, the process in this state inhibits participation by forcing individuals to publicly pick a party for which to cast a ballot. And not any party, only Republican or Democrat.
Further, the law states if you pick a party’s ballot, you must intend to vote for a majority of the candidates from that party in the general election.
