Senate circus

Why must the voter be treated like a stooge with nonsense of just voting ‘1’ above the line?

No wonder some people get frustrated. I don’t understand how the second-last candidate can get over the finish line first.

My democratic primary vote above the line should be worth more than some deal stitched up somewhere.

How about a stipulation where only worthy State-endorsed candidates in a political party that actually has 500 active members six months before an election are allowed to nominate for a Federal Senate ballot.
