The fact that my vote does not count in the Florida primary is a violation of the Constitution. Granted I did get to vote, but if it does not count than I really had no say in the matter. I feel this is illigal. Some polling places turned Democrates away, telling them they could not vote at all. Why is the Republicans punishment to cut their delegates in half and not to count Democrates at all ? We can not allow this to happen. I thought this was a Democracy. This is insane. The Democrates spoke and Hillary should get the delegates in Michigan and Florida.

Thanks
Extremely violated!!!!

You have no "right" to vote in any primary. Primary elections are internal processes of each party, and as such are governed by that party's internal rules. YOUR NATIONAL PARTY decided to punish your STATE PARTY because it violated the rules by moving its date up.

Don't like it? Quit the Democratic Party and start your own.
