The Party of Victims Indeed

Michael nailed it.

According to the (Everett) Daily Herald:
Prepare to provide your name, address, phone number and e-mail when you sign in at Democratic caucuses Saturday.

And, if you don't mind, please list your race and sexual orientation, too.

The form set for use in Snohomish and 37 other counties contains boxes asking for ethnicity, and if a participant is disabled or lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgendered.


The inquiries are intended to help Washington's Democratic Party balance its selection of delegates.

Twenty-nine of the party's 97 delegates will be chosen in June based on the plan's numeric goals for diversity.


Those attending Republican caucuses won't find any optional questions. They'll simply sign their name and give their address, phone number and an e-mail address.

"We're not as obsessed with categorizing Americans as our Democratic friends," state Republican Party Chairman Luke Esser said.
Apparently Democrats are more concerned with the privacy rights of terrorists than members of their own party.

But don't bother bringing your voter registration card. If you are voting with the Democrats, you won't need it. Visa, it's everywhere you want to be, even voting with the Democrats.
