Primary election: Won't Vote

This letter to the editor was published in the Tri-City Herald on September 13, 2006.

For the first time in many years as a registered voter, I will not be voting in a primary election.

The reason for this is because the powers that be, at that time, decided that the voters of this state could not vote for the candidate of their choice because this was considered by them to be unconstitutional.

What is unconstitutional about voting for the candidate that the voter feels is best qualified to protect the interest of Washington state, its citizens and their welfare?

What is unconstitutional is that we have had that choice taken away from us by legal "experts" who think they know what is right and what is wrong.
We need to take action to take back control of our voting choices.
