Government Reform Thoughts

Why should New Jersey voters, who are mostly unaffiliated with either of the two major political parties in the state, have to pay the cost of these so-called Primary Elections in their property taxes. Turnouts for Tuesday’s Primary were a dismal 3 and 5 percent locally. Why are there no contested elections? Why are voters disallowed to vote in primaries unless they are a registered Republican or Democrat or unless they wish to become affiliated with either party by taking advantage of their American given right to vote? - See year-to-date reform thoughts.
