In recent years, few issues have managed to unite Florida’s political parties. Not guns or budgets. Not even a pandemic. This year, however, both parties have united to shoot down an amendment that would fundamentally change the political landscape in Florida.
In their crosshairs is Amendment Three. The amendment would allow registered voters in 2024, regardless of party affiliation, to cast a ballot in primary elections for the Legislature, Governor, and Cabinet.
Moreover, the amendment would create a single primary race for each office. Candidates from all parties would appear on the same ballot for an office and only the top two candidates would advance to the general election.
