Bernie beckoned to state hearing
Open Primaries, a nonprofit seeking electoral reform, sent a petition last week signed by more than 3,400 voters to Sen. Bernie Sanders requesting he attend a Dec. 6 state Supreme Court hearing challenging the legality of New York's primary system. The group wants candidates and voters to be able to participate in all state elections regardless of party affiliation. Such a system exists in California, where the top two vote-getters in primary elections advance to the general election.
