Open primaries to unaffiliated voters

Read the New London Day Editorial Board’s opinion here.

“The editorial board has consistently advocated for the two major political parties to open their primary process to accommodate the largest voting bloc in the state — unaffiliated voters. Given that, we enthusiastically back the latest call to do so. It comes from Oz Griebel in his capacity as Connecticut chair of the SAM-CT Task Force.

Last time Griebel was in the news it was as a non-party, petitioning candidate for governor in 2018. He finished a distant third behind the winner, Democrat Ned Lamont, and Republican candidate Bob Stefanowski.

SAM — Serve America Movement — describes itself as ‘a citizen-driven, voluntary group of people who believe America can be, and should be, a country where level-headed views work to find compromise and consensus.'”
