Re: “Solving Colorado's primary apathy

Primaries and caucuses are the candidate selection processes of the respective political parties. Those parties are private entities, not government agencies and should, therefore, be the full responsibility of the parties, not the taxpayers -- full responsibility meaning both financial and administrative. Open primaries, primaries versus caucuses, and "top-two" primaries all address a problem that is not a problem for the state to resolve. For one thing, there are political parties other than the two major parties. Also, there are independent candidates with no party affiliation. Given those potential alternatives plus the liklihood that many eligible voters find no candidate in a given election cycle will represent their concerns and interests, it is little more than hubris -- as well as demonstrably ignorant -- to accuse those prospective voters of "apathy" if they don't choose to participate in either the Democratic or Republican party candidate selection processes.
