Now that the people have defeated
a constitutional amendment which
had for its purpose the nomination
of state officers except governor by
political party conventions instead
of by party voters at primaries, the
state senate proposes to strengthen
the primary elect ion law by requir
ing registration pf voters in small
cities, villages and country precincts.
In committee of the vrliole the sen
ate placed its mark of approval upon
S. F. 305. a bill introduced by Heed
of Hamilton. There was no discus
sion and no opposition to the bill af
ter the introducer explained its pro
visions. It is designed to prevent
voters from changing their politics
in the twinkling of an eye just before
a primary ejection. It is now almost
impossible for voters in the larger
cities to do this. In the big cities,
or those over 7,000 population, the
present registration laws are not
changed by the bill.
Reed said his bill L almost an ex
act copy of the Oregon law. Califor
nia has a similar law. It provides
that in 1922 precinct assessors shall
register voters when they assess pro
perty. Such registrations stand un
less voters move from one place to
another. Then they are expected .to
go to the county clerk and register
again. Party affiliations must be
given to precinct assessors if voters
expect to take part in primary elec
tiens. A voter cannot change his
party affiliation except by giving
thirty days' notice prior to a pri
mary election. This notice must be
filed with the county clerk. Voters
may register on a general election
day but must register thirty days
prior to a primary election. Reed
said the bill will prevent members of
one political party from jumping
over into another party for the pur
pose of helping nominate candidate?
an J then dropping back into their old
party affiliations at the general elec
tion. Senator Saunders of Douglas and
Senator Miller of Washington point
ed in opposing Heed's S. F. 304, re
quiring fifteen days notice before a
marriage license can be issued and
the senate took judicial notice of
their plea that the bill will make it
still harder for bachelor senators to
enter the sea of matrimony and in
definitely postpone the bill. Wiltse
of Richardson moved to bury the bill
and he was joined by the two bach
"Most of the members of this body
have sneaked into matrimony under
the old law," said Saunders, "and
this I ill is not fair to some members
of this senate who have not taken
advantage of the law as it stands."
"If this bill will make it more
difficult," said Miller, "I do not know
how some of us are ever to enter
into the blissful state of matrimony.
You should not discriminate . against
Reed said hs had introduced the
bill for a man whose children had
married in haste and were soon di
vorced would stop hasty marriages
and many divorces.
Hastings of Perkins said the child
welfare committee has a bill which
hj'.s been amended so as to provide
fcr five days notice posted in the
county judge's office. He liked that
bill better than the Reed bill.
Some found fault with the Reed
bill because 'it requires notice given
to parents or guardians and it ap
plies to persons of whatever age.
The bill was indefinitely postponed.
