Barring a reversal in fortunes, a Constitutional amendment that would change Florida primaries will make the 2020 ballot.
The All Voters Vote (AVV) committee would open up Florida’s primary elections for state Legislature, Governor, and Cabinet to all voters, including independents, starting in 2024, setting up a “top-two” system.
At least in theory, this could enhance partisan passions at the ballot box.
Of the 766,200 verified signatures necessary for ballot access, the committee already has 621,601 as of Thursday morning.
The citizen initiative proposes that “all registered voters (may) vote in primaries for the state Legislature, Governor, and Cabinet regardless of political party affiliation.”
