THE PRIMARY LAW
Some Features of it Which
Are Very Essential.
In case some of our readers are not
acquainted vith the new primary law
which was adopted by the people at
the June election, 1904, we are en
deavoring to set forth some of the most
essential features in the article which
As it has been heretofore voters in
registering for the ensuing election
were not required to state their
politics, but that was under the old
system vhich did not reflect upon the
present primary nominations. A voter,
under the law as it now is, wishing to
take part in the republican or demo
cratic primaries, to nominate republican
or democratic tickets, which ever the
case may be, must, when he registers,
state to the registering officer that he
s a member of either the republican
or democratic party, and the officer
will be required to enter him as such
under the 'heading of "Remarks" on
the registration blank. Unless the
voter doe's register as such he will not
be permitted to vote in the primaries
for the nomination of candidates in
either of these respective parties.
Ori going into the primaries on pri
mary election- day the voter will be
given a democratic or republican ticket
depending, of course, on how he is
registered. In case he should not be
registered as either he will not be al
lowed to vote in either 0 these res
pectlve parties' primaries, or if he has
failed to state his politics in- his
registration he will not be allowed to
vote in the primaries at all.
mis must not, nowever, be con
strued to mean that the voter must
vote at the regular election in June
accordiag to the way he has registered,
for then, as it always has been, he can
vote for who ever he chooses, be he
republican, democrat, socialist or pro
The voter must remember that the
old way of nominating candidates
through conventions has beerf supersed
ed by this new law and that they will
now be nominated by the people direct,
This is why the voter under the new
law is required to state his politics tn
his registration simply for the protec
tion of the candidates; that is to to say,
that neither party can go in forces to
the other party's primary election and
use their, influence In electing wak
candidates for office.
