A proposed citizens ballot initiative to let all voters, regardless of party affiliation, vote in primary elections could be headed to the 2020 ballot. One of its sponsors, Steve Vancore, believes the move would change the way Florida politicians campaign.
“I have long studied voter behavior, I’ve been working on voter behavior, voter analysis for over 30 years.” Vancore said. He’s president of Clearview Research, which runs political polling and focus groups.
Vancore is also a partner at Tallahassee-based communications firm, Vancore-Jones. He says the way Florida conducts its primary elections is a broken system.
“Florida is only one of 11 states that has a pure closed system,” Vancore said.
