Caucuses should be eliminated because

- they depress turn out by making it harder to vote; many people can not take the time out from work to participate and they also make it harder for the physically challenged or non-ambulatory to vote

-there is no secret ballot and the secret ballot is the sine qua non of democracy; one should be able to vote free from fear of reprisals or retaliations.

- they are subject to the rule of the mob where quieter voices are ignored
