LETTER: Don’t let independents vote in Nevada primary elections

A recent letter writer wrote to complain that, as a political independent, she couldn’t vote in party primaries.

If you want a voice in that choice, join the party. Primaries are not general elections. The idea of open primary elections seems to miss the whole point.
