As an Ohio resident I will be casting my ballot for Hillary. First and last time I will ever vote for a Clinton. I am hoping for a really amusing national convention from the Dims.

Oh.good.grief.

I just finished voting in suburbia Dallas, and it’s no friggin’ wonder that I don’t vote for friggin’ Democrats. It took almost an hour, at 7:45AM, to vote in one race.

A few thoughts:
1) I love my grandmothers, but I don’t need them working a polling station! At least not the registration tables! You need to have a modicum of speed to do this job ladies.
2) Surely, as bad as the digital age must be (’cause everyone tells me that voting electronically is fraud and Diebold will steal my vote) there has to be a faster way to find a registered voter than by notebook! Four notebooks, four lines, signed by the voter and grandma. And grandma wants to talk....and then you’re handed the ballot.
3) You would think a primary election that finally matters in Texas (or the first time in modern history) might mean the genius Democrat organizers wouldn’t put 7 precincts at one polling place. You would be wrong.

Look, I want a contested Democratic convention, so I voted for a Democrat for the first time since I was a child, and too dumb to know better. I guess my punishment for that was the wait.

I wonder what comments the cross-over votes will draw when its republicans crossing over to democrat’s primaries and not the other way around?

It’s strategery.

Sounds like a case of the ends justify the means. Why let the other party bring what they consider to be their best candidate as soon as possible if you can interfere.

I love the implication that "they do it, so my unethical actions regarding the electoral process are justified".

Here’s my comment, Democrats that do this for the purpose of throwing a wild card into the mix are wrong, so are Republicans.

Hey WNFB - we had the same problem here in GA a few years ago, then someone, at least in my precinct, got wise. Now when I show up at the polling station, the table is staffed by high school kids. The Grandma’s and Grandpa’s are still there to oversee things, but the kids are fast with the computer (we are Diebold zombies) and even faster scolling through the registered voter pads. I have not waited more than 5 minutes to vote in years!

Good!

I hate the idea of an "open primary"

Let each side deal with their candidates.

So was McCain a wildcard? Because his comeback centered heavily on winning NH. Without cross-overs, that may not have happened.

What about those of us who are decidedly independent?
Are we supposed to throw our chips in the same pot as the rest of you ruminants?

I like an open primary.
It means I can vote for whomever I damned well please.

For all the effort, we should eliminate the primaries and have a two round election process with a runoff of the top candidates of the first round. Three rounds would be better.

There’s nothing intrinsically wrong with an open primary, but there are a lot dishonest anti-Democratic people who’s singular goal is to thwart the process.

If they close primaries, you’ll have these people to blame.

Then there’s the law of unintended consequences. These republicans are voting for Hillary... Be careful what you ask for!
