I’ve seen open primaries happen in action. And yes, they work.
As a high school student in suburban Columbus, Ohio, I was a bit of a social studies geek, and I entertained a bit of a dream of “studying abroad” in Nebraska when I was in college. This is because Nebraska is home to the only unicameral, nonpartisan legislature in the country.
Upon graduation from college, I was afforded the opportunity to move to Omaha, Nebraska to enlist for a year of national service as an AmeriCorps, VISTA volunteer. I would spend the next two and a half years in Nebraska, working in local government and then moving into the advocacy world, eventually serving as an organizer (and part-time lobbyist) for Planned Parenthood of the Heartland.
