One reader's opinion: Republican caucus not election

One reader's take on the petition to void the March 22, 2016 Wet-Dry Election

The Republican caucus doesn't pass the common sense sniff test as a bonafide "election," based on - if nothing else - KRS 120.005(1), Kentucky's straightforward legal description of a ballot (the underlining for emphasis writer's):
"A 'ballot' or 'official ballot' means the voting machine ballot label, ballot cards, paper ballots, an absentee ballot, a special ballot, or a supplemental paper ballot which has been authorized for the use of the voters in any primary, general or special election by the Secretary of State or the county clerk[.]"
