If you're a Democrat or a Republican, today's the day that you get to choose the ones that we all get to choose from in November. If you're a Democrat, you've already participated in the boondoggle that was the Democratic Presidential Caucus (may it rest in peace). But today is the day that you get to choose the rest of the ticket.
Unfortunately, primaries tend to attract the participation of party activists and special interest groups while the general public watches from the bleachers. This is especially true of today's primary where the presidential question has already been decided for both parties.
However, down ballot races are important. Local government officials can rob you of your money and your freedoms just as quickly as a President, Senator or Congressman can. In fact, in may ways your local officials are far more dangerous because they often work below the radar of public notice.
There are a number of races that will be decided in the primary as there is no opponent for the general election. Today could be your only chance to weigh-in on the election's outcome. So get your butt off your Barcalounger and go vote!
