Blame the political parties, not county auditors, for lack of choice

Published in Tacoma News Tribune: September 16th, 2006

I am constantly amazed at the lack of understanding on the part of voters. I have been listening to the news reports and to people in public discussing the pick-a-party primary, and what I hear is idiocy.

People are blaming the county auditors for having to choose a party to have their vote count in the primary election. Do these people not read the newspaper or listen to the news stories? It was not the county auditors who made the decision that we can no longer vote for whomever we choose. It was the political parties. Yet the auditors are being reviled by the public.

Those writing nasty letters to the beleaguered auditors and their election staffs need to stop and think. They should address their concerns to the leaders of the major state political parties and to the Legislature. The Republican and Democratic parties’ leadership sued the state to change our primary election.

I also prefer to vote for whomever I choose and am frustrated that I can no longer do so. However, I don’t blame my county auditor. She is required to follow the law.
