Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig: “The New York primary is bullshit”

"I can't say whether this will fundamentally alter the results of the primary tomorrow but I have a feeling it will"
Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig isn’t happy about the New York primary election, calling his home state’s voting process “bullshit”.



The state holds closed primaries, meaning only those registered with a specific party can vote in that party’s primary. The vote is held tomorrow, but the deadline for registration was October 9th, meaning if you were registered as a Republican or independent, if you didn’t swap 6 months ago – before much of the debate had even started – you’re out of luck.



Koenig wrote, “I can’t say whether this will fundamentally alter the results of the primary tomorrow but I have a feeling it will. Either way, this isn’t democracy.”
