Why does Arizona ranks 43rd in the country when it comes to voter turnout?
Governor Brewer won't oppose "top two primary" initative
Governor Jan Brewer says she won’t take any further steps to have legislators consider election-law changes.
An initiative that will appear on the November ballot would allow Arizonans to vote for a candidate of any party in the primary election, and advance the primary's top two finishers to the general election -- regardless of party affiliation.
Brewer says she's concerned those changes would weaken the current election system. The Governor and Republican legislators had agreed to hold a special session this week on a referendum that would have required candidates to disclose their party affiliation on the primary ballot, but that plan fell apart.
Brewer says while she still dislikes the so-called “top two primary” initiative, she has no further plans to counteract it.
