Arizona Midterm Primary Election Tomorrow

Slow Early Ballot Returns, Rise of No Party Preference Voters...

In this local news video the media people are missing an opportunity to educate the voter population and are misusing the term "Independent Voters." Arizona does not recognize the Independent Party and our system is designed to choose among four parties (Green, Democrat, Libertarian, Republican) or select No Party Preference. The No Party Preference designation allows the voter to select one party ballot (except Libertarian) of the four parties and vote in that partied primary. The term "Independent" is misleading and confusing to voters but unfortunately mainstream media tv people think it's simpler.
