    My comment on this bill.

    This should be extended to all elections in the state including presidential. Eliminate all political party references as well.

    "However, political parties, may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which CUNNING, AMBITIOUS, AND UNPRINCIPLED MEN will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust domination." George Washington, Farewell Address, September 17, 1796. (My emphasis added.)
