Commentary: A slew of slurs

Standing in line at my voting precinct on primary day, I heard comments from two people in front of me. "I don't know if this is where we are supposed to vote," the man said. 'I haven't voted in a long time." And the lady with him commented, "We just want to vote against Trump and Hillary Clinton." Told that they would have to choose either a Republican or Democratic ballot, they were unhappy and didn't understand why they couldn't vote in both primaries.
