2012 House Bill 5978: Allow primary election ticket splitting
  1. Introduced by Rep. Lisa Brown (D) on October 17, 2012, to allow voters to split their ticket in a primary election. That is, to be able to choose between competing Republican candidates for some offices, and competing Democratic candidates for other offices. Under current law a person may vote in only the Republican or Democratic primary elections (the state does not subsidize primaries for any other political parties).
    • Referred to the House Redistricting and Elections Committee on October 17, 2012.
