How enticing is today’s full-scale Democratic presidential primary? So enticing even some Republicans want in. The News & Observer reports the N.C. Board of Elections has received complaints from GOP voters who’ve asked for Democratic ballots. Here’s what the paper reported:
“At Raleigh’s Falls River precinct (in Raleigh), voter Diane Earp said she was
frustrated to learn that the state does not allow crossover voting in the
primary.‘I am so disgusted with my Republican Party of the last eight years
I want to change my position,’ she said.”
Unaffiliated voters can choose which primary they want to cast ballots in, but party crossover voting is not allowed in North Carolina. Should it be? Or would that open the door and let voters in one party manipulate the outcome of the other party’s nomination?
