With June finance reports filed, a political committee behind an amendment to open primaries crossed a fundraising threshold.
The All Voters Vote (AVV) committee would open up Florida’s primary elections for House and Senate to all voters, including independents, starting in 2024, setting up a “top-two” system.
The citizen initiative proposes that “all registered voters (may) vote in primaries for state legislature, governor, and cabinet regardless of political party affiliation.”
Party nominees, third party candidates, and everyone else would be on the same primary ballot, called by some a “blanket primary” and others a “jungle primary.”
The two candidates who do the best move on to a general election, unless just two candidates initially qualify, in which case the primary closes it out.
