HB 31: Limiting the Primaries

Virginia House Bill #31 will, if enacted, make Virginia's primary elections a little less conducive to cheating and sabotage. Voters will be limited to voting in one primary election, and will have to pick a party and work with it. This will discourage the well-known practice (not my practice, she adds indignantly) of trying to double down on support for your candidates by also voting in the opposing party's primary for the candidates you consider least competent to run against yours.

Thank you, Delegate Lingamfelter.
