Regarding the Aug. 23 editorial, “Voters apparently still dislike picking a party”:
I highly resent being forced to pick a political party in order to be allowed to vote. This is America; home of the brave, and land of the free. Free to vote as I want, not only as a member of a political party.
Voting is my privilege as a U.S. citizen and registered voter. Party loyalty is allowed, but not required, under the Constitution. Who I vote for and how I vote should be a private matter, not dictated by our government agencies. I vote for who I feel would be the best person for the position, not for which party they belong to.
I will not be told how I should vote. I will vote for whom I wish, or not at all.
Too bad I had to pass on this month’s primary election. There were some good people on the ballot, but they didn’t all belong to the same political party. Land of the free?
