To the office of the Secretary of State of Mississippi:
I, Doll Swindle, a registered voter of Wayne County, Mississippi, purpose the following initiative which is an issue that has not been addressed:
Change the current voting election process for Primaries from closed primary to open primary. this will allow Republican, Democrat, and Independent voters to select the candidate they believe is best for each race without being excluded the opportunity to vote due to their political party affiliation. Each voter is then given the power to show that their vote counts regardless of their political party but their morals, values and beliefs will be heard. Having an open primary will also encourage more people to show up on election day. The candidate for each office will be able to run in whatever political party he or she chooses without having to crossover just to receive votes. Each ballot will have a list of Republican, Democrat, and Independent Candidate for each office. After the votes have been casted then the top Republican, Democrat and Independent Candidate will run in the November Election. This will take the edge off the candidates so that they will be able to run for their political party, but allow voters to choose who they want in office. The money used to fund this open primary format would come from the same funding mechanism that is currently in place for Mississippi elections and should actually reduce the cost associated with the election process in Mississippi.
