Going on the premise that politics are a turnoff because our political parties have too many radical or conservative elements, is hurting the country’s democratic process.

When mainstream voters decide to be unaffiliated with a political party, it allows fewer people to have a greater say especially in primary elections when only those aligned with a political party can vote.

In Tuesday’s primary election, 525 Allen County voters were listed as unaffiliated.
