ON NO the CRP RECOMMENDS WWW.STOPPROP14.COM PROP 14 Prop 14 claims it's an "open primary" when it's really a “CLOSED ELECTION” because it closes o your rights as a voter. It means: --Candidates will end up being hand-picked by insiders or committees--and you won't get a say in who your party's candidates will be. --In districts that are politically tilted heavily in favor of one party, the general election ballot will only have a Democrat vs. a Democrat, or a Republican vs. a Republican. --Only the best-funded candidates would make the top two, meaning no third party voices between June and November where voters are twice as likely to be engaged in the election cycle. --No write-in candidates would be allowed. THE CRP RECOMMENDS "NO ON 14!" www.stopprop14.com
