Assembly eyes open primaries, end to straight ticket voting
The Senate on Tuesday voted 42 to 8 on Tuesday for a bill that would let unaffiliated voters decide which major party primary they want to cast their ballot in.
The Senate also voted 30-20 to end straight ticket voting that lets people cast all their votes for a single party.
The House bill would prohibit the administration from decertifying voting machines in most counties without reporting details to the General Assembly six months beforehand.
