Florida voters could be asked to open the state’s primaries to everyone, regardless of party affiliation. The Florida Supreme Court has approved the “All Voters Vote” amendment for the November ballot, over the united objection of the Republican and Democratic parties.
Republicans and Democrats don’t agree on much these days, but the two state parties are united in their opposition to the “All Voters Vote” constitutional amendment proposal. The Democrats argued in a December hearing that letting all voters, regardless of party, cast ballots in a primary stops those who are party members from directly electing their representatives.
All Voters Vote’s attorney argued not allowing the state’s 3.7 million minor and no party affiliated voters cast ballots in primaries disenfranchises them.
