Open primary goes back to court

August 29, 2012

Paul Johnson, Chairman of the Open Elections/Open Government initiative, talks about legal efforts to get the proposition on November's ballot.

Johnson says the Maricopa County Elections Department was wrong when it decided initiative supporters didn't turn in enough valid petition signatures. On Thursday, supporters will argue signatures shouldn't have been tossed out. Opponents, meanwhile, say signatures were invalid and some of them were collected by convicted felons, which would not be allowed.
