Vox Populi: Strides in improving the Presidential Nominating Process
by Javier Anderson

Vox Populi- A Letter to the Editor:
Strides in improving the Presidential Nominating Process
by Javier Anderson

EDITOR's NOTE: The author of the following vox Populi is no relation to Richard E. Berg-Andersson

I wish to respond to Mr. Berg-Andersson's long soliloquy recently published on your wonderful site, and, as succinctly as I can, offer as measured a response to it as I can manage. Permit me in providing not only a simple reply to Mr. Berg-Andersson's oration, but also some critical perspective needed in his piece that I feel should be included.

Firstly, as I think one can surely appreciate, it is very clear that over the long arch of the history of the United States, we have made major (some might even say "Youj"!) strides in improving the presidential nominating process since President Woodrow Wilson made his initial proposal that December day back in 1913. Before the 19th Century, only Presidential Electors were truly accountable as to who would become the leader of the country; before the 20th Century, only a few party bosses had the ability to nominate party candidates for the highest office in the land. Before 1968, National Convention delegates (or bosses) did not have accountability to any rank-and-file party members, let alone the voting public as a whole; and, before 2008, few people could really say they conceptually understood the ....

CONNECTICUT STATE PRIMARIES (for FEDERAL offices)

polls are open from 6 AM to 8 PM local time [1000 to 0000 GMT]

There are Primary Elections for Party nominations to the United States Senate [Class 3 seat] as well as to the State's 5 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives.

NOTE: CONNECTICUT utilizes a so-called 'Challenge Primary' system: State and District Party Conventions were already held this past Spring at which uncontested candidates for elective office were nominated. Primaries are held only where a nomination has been contested: second-place (and lower) candidates must receive 15% or more support at the Convention in order to force just such a 'Challenge Primary' or otherwise gather petition signatures to get onto the Primary ballot.

Tuesday 2 August 2016: State and/or Federal Primaries in KS, MI, MO & WA
by TheGreenPapers.com Staff

KANSAS STATE PRIMARIES (for FEDERAL offices)

polls are statutorily open from 7 AM to 7 PM local time [1200 to 0000 GMT re: Central Time; 1300 to 0100 GMT re: Mountain Time]

NOTE: A county in the Central Time Zone may (by local option) open the polls no earlier than 6 AM local time and close them no later than 8 PM local time, while a county in the Mountain Time Zone may (by local option) open the polls no earlier than 5 AM local time and close them no later than 7 PM local time. In any event, all polls in Kansas are thereby closed by no later then 8 PM Central/7 PM Mountain [0100 GMT]

There are Primary Elections for Party nominations to the United States Senate [Class 3 seat] as well as to the State's 4 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Returns from
Kansas Secretary of State.
Results from
AP.


MICHIGAN STATE PRIMARIES (for FEDERAL offices)

polls are open from 7 AM to 8 PM local time [1100 to 0000 GMT re: Eastern Time; 1200 to 0100 GMT re: Central Time]

There are Primary Elections for Party nominations to the State's 14 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Results from
AP.


MISSOURI STATE PRIMARIES

polls are open from 6 AM to 7 PM local time [1100 to 0000 GMT]

There are Primary Elections for Party nominations to the United States Senate [Class 3 seat] as well as to the State's 8 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and for the following State-level elective offices: Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of State and Treasurer.

Returns from
Missouri Secretary of State.
Results from
AP.


WASHINGTON STATE PRIMARIES

Washington State votes by mail. Ballots must be postmarked on or before Primary Day, or dropped off in a designated ballot box by 8 PM local time on Primary Day. Thus, 8 PM local time [0300 GMT] is considered to be the State's "poll closing time".

NOTE:Washington State utilizes a so-called 'Top Two' Primary: All candidates for an elective office run "all up" and the two candidates who receive the most votes in the Primary and receive at least 1% of the total votes cast qualify as the only two candidates (regardles of Party or lack thereof) on the ballot for the General Election. Each candidate for partisan office may state a political Party that he or she prefers, but a candidate's preference does not imply that the candidate is nominated or endorsed by that Party, or that the Party necessarily approves of or associates with that candidate.

There are such 'Top Two' Primary Elections for the United States Senate [Class 3 seat] as well as to the State's 10 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and for the following State-level elective offices: Governor, Lieutenant Governor Attorney General, Auditor, Insurance Commissioner, Public Lands Commissioner, Secretary of State, Treasurer and Superintendent of Public Instruction. The 'Top Two' Primary for this last-named office is, however, Non-Partisan.

Returns from
Washington Secretary of State.
Results from
