On CNN Saturday, anchor Victor Blackwell got Nevada Caucuses site leader Seth Morrison to concede that the caucus system — even with its expanded early voting — was broken beyond repair and needs to be abolished.
“I strongly encourage early voting, because at least it’s on a piece of paper,” said Morrison. “They’ve done ranked choice voting in a few states. The software exists, the process exists.”
“If you’re advising people to vote early, I know if I’m voting in a primary, I go into a booth, press the button and know which candidate I’m voting for,” said Blackwell. “If I’m going to a caucus and I’m physically there, I know where I’m putting my body and who gives me my support. If I give you a list of five names in order of my preference but I don’t know who’s viable at what point and when do I go to the other person on my list, how do I know at the end of the process who actually had my vote?”
