  •  Your primary party choice is anonymous in VT (1+ / 0-)

    In primaries for state offices, you are given ballots for all major parties, but you can only vote in one party primary, and discard the others. There is no public recording of which ballot you vote and which ones you discard --and even party volunteers can't record it because it is done at the end of the process away from the areas where the volunteers are allowed to sit.

    The only time there is a public declaration of primary party choice is every 4 years for the Presidential primary -- this is only done because the national parties require it and the state legislature went along with requiring it.  As a result, a record is kept of which party's ballot you take for the Presidential primary.

    Once social change begins,it cannot be reversed. You cannot uneducate the person who has learned to read...You cannot oppress people who are not afraid anymore.
