I actually know some of these people. This conversation showed up on my facebook page. These people are angry because Obama will not let them vote a ‘split ticket’ in the August Primary Election. They throw terms around like “constitutional rights” and “denied the right to vote”. These people are Trump supports and they are nuttier than him. One lady sure showed those corrupt election officials – she claims she voted strictly republican.
Sheila Montague Pauley It’s a primary. They always do party tickets in a primary to select the candidate that will run for that party in November. They won’t let you split parties up for a primary. You will be able to vote split-ticket in the General Elections or you can go a straight-party ticket if you want. You just can’t do it during a primary, where each party makes a selection of a candidate to go forward to the November elections.
Sheila Montague Pauley For primaries, you can always choose Nonpartisan and they will give you a ballot without people on it and you can vote only for the issues (usually tax increases). Just let each party sort it out for themselves. Only one person from each party will make it to general elections where you can vote for whomever you want, even write in whomever you want.
Darold Younger They didn’t even offer me a Nonpartisan ticket! but there was a question on each about if I would approve a tax to repair and maintain the Levees here, but why would I vote to do that when they are run and regulated by the Army Corps of Engineers? they fucked up the Levees a few years ago, let THEM fix em!
Sheila Montague Pauley I think you have to ask for the Nonpartisan probably since most people go party tickets. They screwed up a lot of levee’s. I wonder if you guys have some private state run or local run levee’s there. You didn’t have the out of state motor vehicle tax question? Weird, I thought that was state wide, must have been local too.
Sheila Montague Pauley I’m sure that’s true, it must be a levee district by the Corps. That would be the only way I think it would only be on the ballot for your area and not for the whole state to vote on. But still that’s Federal Money, shouldn’t be state money. I wouldn’t think anyway.
