Right now in Florida, registered voters can only vote for the candidate running in the party they’re registered with. But that could change if one group gets its way.
If voters agree to an “open primary,” it would give thousands of no-party affiliation voters, often referred to as independents, a chance to vote.
No party affiliation is the fastest-growing block of voters in the state, but each year many are shutout of the primaries, and that’s because unless there is a no-party affiliate or an “independent” candidate running, voters don’t get a say until the general election.
Now the All Voters Vote Committee is working to change that.
