Now that it's been around a while, what do you think of the state's top-two primary?

I like it. The top two vote-getters advance to the general election, regardless of their party, which gives us the best candidates possible. (43.61% - 58 votes)

I don't like it. We should always have a choice between a Democrat and a Republican, and this system doesn't guarantee it. (44.36% - 59 votes)

Actually I like the kind of primary elections where you declare party membership, choose that party's ballot, and then vote only for its candidates. (12.03% - 16 votes)
