Which state ought to be the first to hold a presidential primary or caucus, respectively, during primary season, if it were up to you?

New Hampshire should retain the first-in-the-nation primary.

I voted Nevada, but I wouldn't be opposed to Illinois going first.

I'm about done with Iowa though.

NJ, though NH would probably insist on going first and get to continue going first.

Nevada would be perfect, and (with South Carolina a close second primary state) would more closely resemble the current makeup of the Democratic Party than either Iowa or New Hampshire while still being small enough for the retail politicking that enables less-established candidates to make themselves known to the electorate.

New Jersey is very representative of the party and is my home state, easy choice!

Agree with the first half of the sentence, and as to the second, it could apply since I was born in NJ.

I continue to say that primaries should be nationwide.

Bold take:

California. Literally every kind of demographic here, a myriad of local issues that can translate well into national issues for both parties and gets a huge delegate prize out of the way early.

How would that work?
Would there still be delegates elected in a nationwide primary?
Of will it be a direct vote of the candidates instead? If so, with how many runoffs?

Direct vote with no runoff. Plurality candidate wins.

It needs to be a set of states (say 4-6) that go on the same day.

Early states basically start getting visits after the midterms. There is plenty of time to visit multiple states across the country. It's probably more fair this way if different regions of the country get to bigger say.

IA will/should probably lose its status but having IA/NH/NV/SC seems fairly representative.

I'd prefer a nationwide STV primary. Candidates create a national list of delegates, and voters rank the candidates. Almost all delegates allocated proportionally, with the remaining handful dealt with as you would in STV.

The reason to keep delegates around is you still need a group of people to vote on and write a party platform/manifesto, and I'd prefer they be directly elected by their constituents, rather than have a vote by virtue of holding another office.

That being said, I voted for California because it's the largest state. If you can't have a nationwide primary, I'd say it should largely be in order of population.
