We appreciate OPB doing this program. Fusion voting is a stonger version of democracy, and allows candidates to receive nominations from more than one party.
This stengthens our process, and gives minor parties more leverage with candidates. Candidates can either support party positions, and commit to endorsing such positions, or parties can go elsewhere with their nominations. This gives alternative parties more of a voice in what is supposed to be democracy. It can easily be argued that with a two party system, choices for the people, are seriously limited.
It is our hope that Governor Kulingowski will stand up a for strengthened democray, and sign SB 326.
