I agree with the guest commentary in the Jan. 2 newspaper. The primary should be moved up to Super Tuesday or before.

We need to get rid of the Democratic caucus and use the primary. This is a system that has outlived its usefulness. Now, when we have instant communication, it is ridiculous to continue the caucus system.

We also need to do away with super delegates to the national parties conventions. These people aren’t obliged to vote the winner of their states primary or caucus and can cast a vote for whomever they choose. That is not the correct way to handle an election.

Another item that has outlived its usefulness is the Electoral College. Back in the day, when it took weeks for everyone to get to Philadelphia and/or Washington, D.C., it was necessary, but that is no longer true.

The president should be elected by the popular vote. Period.
