John Locke Foundation President John Hood nails the problem with nonpartisan elections in a recent segment for Carolina Journal Radio. By removing political party affiliation, you are intentionally withholding from the voter what is an important piece of information.
The citizenry is better served with more information, not less. This is a contributing factor to the low turnout in municipal elections.
