Passing on the word

from novapsyche



The national party voted to strip Michigan of delegates as a penalty, but party leaders in the electoral-vote rich state have expressed confidence that they will be seated at the convention.

None of the candidates, including Clinton, will be campaigning here, and none have authorized write-in campaigns–-which means that, under state law, their supporters cannot cast write-in votes for any of them.

But if at least 15 percent of the voters in a congressional district opt for the "uncommitted" option rather than voting for Clinton, delegates not bound to any candidate could attend the national convention--a development that could allow Edwards or Obama supporters to play a role in candidate selection there.



Personally I think disallowing write-in capaigns if they are not "authorized" is the biggest clusterfuck part of this. I mean, we're supposed to be able to do write in campaigns for *anyone*, aren't we?

Anyway, I will seriously consider voting for "uncommitted" in the primary on Tuesday.
