Though the season of primaries is almost behind us, November is nearly half a year away and we could still be in for a lot more partisan politics and mudslinging. If it seems like there ought to be a more civil way to run democratic elections, members of the Baha'i faith say that's because there is. And once a year, they refine a new democratic process in that big white temple in north suburban Wilmette.
