Super Tuesday

Twenty-four states are holding caucuses or primary elections on Super Tuesday, 2008. Blue denotes Democratic-only caucuses (3), Red illustrates Republican-only contests (2), and Purple represents states holding elections for both parties (19). (from wiki)

My question is this:
Why are taxpayers/municipalities paying for this vote which really should be paid for by the Democrat and Republican National Committees? Since we are choosing party candidates for them shouldn't they be footing the bill for this election? Primaries and caucuses are not the same as general elections.
