Louisiana GOP Not Fearful of Stupidity of Louisiana Voters - Wants Closed Primary Back

Hmm to bad they had little influence with the legislature and the Governor a couple of months ago.

.......The current fall federal elections are being run on the closed-party primary system in which Republicans can vote only for Republican candidates. Non-affiliated voters cannot participate in the GOP contests — a decision made by party officials.

Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal signed into law legislation that returns the federal elections to an open primary system in 2012. Other state elections are open primaries.

Proponents of the change said the closed system was too confusing to voters and added unnecessary election expenses.........

IT'S CONFUSING!!! Really? I think most people get it. They watch TV. They understand the concept of closed primary. It's new that is all.
