About 46 percent of people responding to the Argus-Courier online poll were not satisfied with the new open primary voting system for the June 5 election. Meanwhile, 36.7 percent were satisfied, and 16.7 percent weren’t sure. The most popular way to inform oneself about the election was through newspapers. About 40 percent of those polled preferred that method. Independent websites were the next most popular method at 33 percent, while candidates’ websites, broadcast and direct mail trailed behind. Here were some of the comments. —— “Answer to number two should have had an “all of the above” option! Open primary — ugh — now we can’t even have two parties represented on a final ballot. What numbskull gave birth to this idea? Oops, I forgot the educated people of the state of California voted for it so it must be OK.” —— “I wish that we would have had open primaries six years ago so maybe we wouldn’t have had to suffer with now career politician Jared Huffman.” —— “List of U.S. Senate candidates was absurdly long. Do you really think people will take the time to learn about all those candidates in every party? Not really.” —— ——“Now if we can only get some decent people to run for office instead of these perennial self-servers.” —— “There are no distinct candidates they’re all basically the same, sad.” —— “List of U.S. Senate candidates was absurdly long. Do you really think people will take the time to learn about all those candidates in every party? Not really.” ——
