Volunteers conduct the recount of ballots in the Progressive Party’s gubernatorial primary.
We're right in the middle of a busy campaign season which was made more complicated by the recount in the Progressive Party's gubernatorial race. That has spawned a number of election issues in the past few weeks, such as is late August the right time to have a primary? Should all major parties hold a primary or is there a better way to select candidates? And what can we learn from the mistakes that were made during the Progressive recount?

Secretary of State Jim Condos and Dorset Town Clerk Sandy Pinsonault discuss these and other issues.

Also on the program, Seven Days' "Fair Game" columnist Paul Heintz discusses the latest developments in the gubernatorial and state treasurer races.

And we listen back to the voices in the news this week.
