- S.C. Brockman commented on Gov. Schwarzenegger and Congressman Khanna show how CA open primary is working 2018-06-21 12:23:17 -0400Excellent post. I often have heard from those to the right that this system doesn’t work. As a young voter I voted against it, I was very partisan, but I have to come to believe it does work, and should remain. I wonder if we could in fact ever have a constitutional amendment stating states cannot bar anybody from voting based upon Political affiliation. It may in time prove necessary.
