Poll from previous post... blueintelligentsia Mar 2016 #1
OF COURSE. n/t CaliforniaPeggy Mar 2016 #2
Apparently there is some problem with just extending the vote to those suppressed Kalidurga Mar 2016 #3
yes they should be made to re-run the whole primary in AZ Rosa Luxemburg Mar 2016 #4
With lots more polling places Art_from_Ark Mar 2016 #10
yes Rosa Luxemburg Mar 2016 #11
And it would be a warning to potential voter-suppressors in those states that haven't voted yet. Cal33 Mar 2016 #45
No. I don't think any irregularities that might have occurred favored any candidate. Hoyt Mar 2016 #5
It came out today that the vote by mail ballots haven't all been counted. It's just a shit storm. jillan Mar 2016 #6
Arizona, specifically Helen Purcell needs to be told to do her job. LiberalFighter Mar 2016 #7
She needs to resign. Her and Michelle Reagan, SoS. They are a disgrace to democracy. jillan Mar 2016 #8
They need to remind her that she has screwed up other elections. LiberalFighter Mar 2016 #16
Reducing to 60, out of 200 normal caucus sites didn't bother you? Zira Mar 2016 #37
Well most folks nowadays vote early, absentee, by mail, or even on-line in some cases. Hoyt Mar 2016 #47
This is the day of the caucuses. No more caucuses? Zira Mar 2016 #48
Was Arizona a caucus? I don't think so. Hoyt Mar 2016 #49
No, that would disenfranchise everyone who did vote. geek tragedy Mar 2016 #9
They could do a mail-in like Oregon. JudyM Mar 2016 #12
That takes many months if not years to set up let alone execute. geek tragedy Mar 2016 #13
Yeah, probably... Can you think of an alternative? JudyM Mar 2016 #38
That would first require a legislative change. LiberalFighter Mar 2016 #17
Since there seems to be bipartisan support around the issue that could theoretically happen quickly. JudyM Mar 2016 #39
Theoretically, I don't think so. LiberalFighter Mar 2016 #50
Yes, but if not, at least count the provisionals and all absentees lostnfound Mar 2016 #14
They should only count ballots that are identified as Democratic Party voters. LiberalFighter Mar 2016 #20
That DMV stuff is presumably what happened in Florida lostnfound Mar 2016 #34
It likely isn't a voter registration problem but a drivers license registration problem. LiberalFighter Mar 2016 #51
It would be better to make AZ add polling places for the GE. yardwork Mar 2016 #15
There is suppose to be 724 voting locations in the general. LiberalFighter Mar 2016 #21
better for who? superkona Mar 2016 #43
Right wing Republican controlled AZ isn't going to redo this primary. yardwork Mar 2016 #44
I think having another election is unrealistic. Vinca Mar 2016 #18
well if Purcell can do it, how hard can it be?! MisterP Mar 2016 #31
It's not hard. The only hope is having someone with integrity in charge. Vinca Mar 2016 #35
I passed on it. Skid Rogue Mar 2016 #19
If this was a regular primary election that only determined the winner LiberalFighter Mar 2016 #23
I understand your point. Skid Rogue Mar 2016 #32
It is not the Party that is at fault. LiberalFighter Mar 2016 #53
The other option is to have the delegates not seated. Barack_America Mar 2016 #22
Michigan was not seated because they held it when they weren't suppose to. LiberalFighter Mar 2016 #24
I'm aware why MI was not seated. Barack_America Mar 2016 #26
I would disagree. LiberalFighter Mar 2016 #54
So disenfranchise everyone? JoePhilly Mar 2016 #25
I guess so. Delegates have gone unseated for less. Barack_America Mar 2016 #27
Like what lessor event? JoePhilly Mar 2016 #30
Scheduling a fair primary on the wrong day. Barack_America Mar 2016 #33
Dems breaking the rules versus GOP breaking the rules. JoePhilly Mar 2016 #40
For one state, yes. That would be the fairest thing to do. -none Mar 2016 #36
There are no do-overs... Demsrule86 Mar 2016 #28
There are any do overs anyone wants to do. And there should be on in this case. Zira Mar 2016 #41
Exactly. yardwork Mar 2016 #42
Only if there's evidence that there would have been a substantially different outcome Onlooker Mar 2016 #29
And ban all bullhorns from polling places. n/t PonyUp Mar 2016 #46
Yes. Else You Are Mad Mar 2016 #52
