  •  It hurts 3rd parties (4+ / 0-)

    In most cases, they don't make the general in state and local elections. The only race in WA they are guarantied to be represented is for President.

    The ballot may designate a candidate's party preference, like "Prefers _____". The blank spot could be filled with anything, or not at all. In effect, officially we really don't have parties, even though there are strong  organizations affiliated with the national parties.

    Gets confusing.

    Additionally, we don't register by party, so we don't get separate primary ballots.
