Letter in Today's Noblesville Ledger

Addressing the issue of where Libertarians and independents fit into the primary election, my letter was printed in today's Ledger. Link to letter.

The bottom line is this: ask for the "School Board ballot". School board candidates are non-partisan, meaning you can vote on them even if you do not take a Republican or Democratic ballot. If you do take an 'R' or 'D', the act of taking it is a sworn statement, under threat of perjury, that you intend to cast the majority of your votes for that party's candidates in the November general election.

It's an unenforced law, but voting should be on the up-and-up, so I encourage appropriate choices.
