ELECTIONS. OPEN PRIMARY. INITIATIVE STATUTE. Provides that all persons entitled to vote, including those not affiliated with any political party, shall have the right to vote at any elections for any candidate regardless of the candidate's political affiliation. Provides for a single primary ballot on which, under the appropriate title for each office, the names and party affiliations of all candidates are placed randomly and not grouped by political party. Retains separate partisan ballot only for selection of elective political party committee members by voters of each party. Requires Legislature to conform conflicting statutes. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: No direct fiscal impact on state government costs. Local governments should realize some savings from changes attributable to ballot preparation, though net savings would not be significant.
