Arizona independents score big for open primaries

Round Two of a proposal to allow independents to cast a ballot in the presidential preference elections - Arizona's equivalent to a presidential primary - went to supporters. And they scored big. The amendment that would open up presidential primaries to independents was successfully tacked onto two bills. The amendment also would give political parties the option to exclude independents from voting in their presidential primary......The Senate passed S1510, which now carries the provision on independent voters, on third reading on March 12; the Senate passed S1405 the day after.......
