Faces of Open Primaries: Michael Sparks -- Indianapolis, IN
"Indiana has open primaries and I feel pretty well represented in my state. The officials generally listen to me on all the issues I care about. Nationally, our election system needs to be revamped. We need automatic registration at age 18, paid holidays for voting days, and possibly a social media tracker to have accurate real time polling. We also need to do away with closed primaries. It is a form of voter suppression and I will not support any party or elected official that supports closed primaries."
