U.S. Supreme Court Refuses to Hear Washington State Top-Two Open Primary Case

On October 1, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear the appeal filed by the Washington state Democratic Party, and the Washington state Libertarian Party, against the top-two primary system. Technically, this means that the U.S. Supreme Court has not expressed any opinion on the matter. Nevertheless, it is a disappointment for opponents of that type of system.

    The case took a mere 7 years since Aug 2005.

    P.R. and nonpartisan App.V.
    NO primaries, caucuses and conventions.
    ONE election day
    = REAL reforms.
