"November 2008-Are Open Primaries The Problem or The Solution?"

Independence Party
The New York County Lawyers Association presents:
"November 2008-Are Open Primaries The Problem or The Solution?"

Independents shaped the presidential season in 2008, first in the primaries and then in November, and currently 33 states in the country have open primaries for presidential primaries, so why can't Independent New Yorkers vote in primaries?
