Major Parties Are Disorganized; Disenfranchised Independent Voters Need Reforms


INDEPENDENT VOTERS
  • Editorial: Parties drive voters to register as Independents (Daily Courier - Prescott AZ) The numbers themselves aren't new news. We heard about the Independent gains back in January. A new study suggests, however, that while the Independent cause is growing, it is loosely organized. Funny - we think both major parties are the ones suffering from disorganization.
  • YOUR VIEW: In special election, voters disenfranchised by 'major' parties (By Letters from our readers, Birmingham News) As independent voters, we were not allowed to write in the candidate of our choice, so we left the polling place without voting for either printed candidate, disappointed to learn of a carefully crafted loophole in state law.
