Why do we have downvoting in primaries?
It doesn't seem democratic (some may see it as the ultimate democracy in voting) to me. If the candidate has put no effort in fair enough don't upvote them. But the people that have put in effort but are not well liked by the majority, do have a minority of supporters which should not be dismissed of the vote by having someone else downvote them.
Now, as I write this, I know I will probably get downvoted, as I have mostly talked about my opinion rather than hard cold facts.
I just need some enlightenment.
