Issue Report: Primaries in US elections


  • “The presidential primary scam”. Michael Scherer. October 8th, 2008 – “If you are a Republican, your vote for the presidential nominee will be worth more in Tennessee than in New York. If you are a Democrat, your vote in the primary will not count in Florida and is unlikely to count in Michigan. If you are a Republican in Wyoming, you probably won’t get to vote at all, since only party officials have a say.”
