I don't often agree with the Seattle P-I's Editorial Board, but the Pick-A-Party Primary must go. Voters do not like the primary. The Secretary of State's Office received more complaints about the primary in 2004 than anything it has ever done. Also, according to the secretary of state's Web site, the Pick-A-Party Primary system doubled the cost of the election from $6 million to $12 million.
In Pierce County, Amendment 3 would replace the primary with instant runoff voting. I urge Pierce County voters to say yes to Amendment 3 in November.
