  1. Ballot draw is already purely at random. I was fortunate enough to pick the first position and I still did not win the primary.

  2. @gulag Pittsburgh I completely agree with you. There is too much opportunity for rigging should it be purely random without a ballot draw.

  3. Presumably the ballot draw is also random, so the end result would be the same. I actually would trust a public ballot draw more than a computer software that could be tweaked in many ways to secretly favor a particular party or candidate.
