35. Everything I have been able to find about
double voting relates to "same day" voting.

Have you found a federal law specific to the rolling primary issue?

I am not being argumentative. I very much appreciate all of the information that you have previously posted about this issue.

It just seems to me that voting is tied to legal registration and the double primary double question is a gray area in the law.
