141 votes were cast in answer to the poll question "Should there be free and open competition in local Democratic primary elections?" The results are:
Yes, the public should be exposed to all qualified candidates and be able to choose their candidate democratically. - 119 votes or 79.9%
No, party discipline is too important to leave candidate choice up to the people of the district. State party leaders have the right to support only incumbants and to exclude and work against interetsted challengers. - 30 votes or 20.1%
Despite politicians being all for the elimination of competition and free choice, people still prefer a democratic process by a margin of 8 to 2. That's good to see.
