House committee scraps state primary
LANSING (U P-I)-The House Elections Committee
yesterday voted to scrap Michigan's presidential primary,
which has been unpopular with both Democratic and
Republican officials since its inception in 1972.
Sponsor of the repeal bill, Rep. Alfred Sheridan (D-
Taylor), said voter turnout in the primary dipped from 47 per
cent in 1972 to 36.7 per cent in 1976.
"HOW THE hell can we justify throwing $3 million down
the drain?" he asked.
Four Democrats voted against the move, warning ending
the primary would mean a return to closed, back-room
politics with party caucuses replacing the open vote.
There were indications, however, that the committee
might be open to reviving the primary ina different form.
THE HOUSE overwhelmingly voted to repeal the primary
during the last legislature session, but the measure died in
State Sen. Edward Pierce, an outspoken member of the
Democratic Party's liberal wing, said the old system of party
caucuses was "very frustrating for us in the l960s."
"I think the primary has been p great improvement," the
Ann Arbor freshman said.
MANY DEMOCRATS have been seeking to scuttle the
primary since 1972, when former Alabama Gov. George
Wallace embarrassed party regulars by sweeping the state.
"I think we've got a non-representative primary and I
don't think there is any likelihood of making it represen-
tative," said Rep. Nick Ciaramitaro (D-Roseville).
to lobby for
'no' vote on
LANSING (UP!) - A coalition of
civil rights and anti-war groups said
yesterday it will lobby Michigan
congressmen for "no" votes on a plan
to revive the peacetime registration of
18-year-olds for the military draft.
"Michigan, with its 19 members of
the U.S. House of Representatives, will
play a pivotal role in determining the
future of the so-called 'bring back the
draft' movement," said Rose Jackson
of Mount Pleasant, spokeswoman for
the Michigan Committee Against
Registration and the Draft (MCARD).
MCARD spokespersons said they ex-
pect the U.S. House to vote within a
month on legislation requiring persons
who turn 18 after Dec. 31, 1980 to
register for the draft even if the nation
is at peace.
