I am registered As a Democrat and when i voted i did not want to vote tor any of the candidates but wanted to vote for the City Bond election. I was forced to vote for one of the candidates in order to get out of the voting machine. I Don t think this is right. This is forcing me to vote for someone you Don t approve of. Thank you. J. R. D.

In a nutshell the mechanics of the voting machine made it necessary for registered democrats and republicans to vote for a party nominee to free the levers for the Bond issues. Independents who cannot vote for party nominees in the primary could Only push levers for the Bond issues and county school Board candidates who were being elected not nominated. Newly registered Young people who will be old enough to vote in the general election but were too Young at primary time to vote for Bonds or school Board candidates could Only push levers for their party nominees. Setting up the machines to lock or free levers in keeping with each voter s qualifications or party affiliations was further complicated by the fact it was a lengthy list of candidates and issues which were placed so voters could read them without getting Down on their Knees.
