  • Arizona group pushing for open elections (By Joanne Ingram, Green Valley News) Sometimes referred to as a top-two primary, such an election would have all voters choosing from one slate of candidates. At present, those registered with a political party vote in that party’s primary, while registered independents can choose a party’s primary ballot.
