An Arizona Supreme ruling Friday means an initiative measure to transform Arizona's primary election system can go on the November ballot if supporters submitted enough petition signatures.
The Supreme Court's brief order overturns a trial judge's ruling that the measure violated a constitutional prohibition against putting more than one proposed constitutional amendment in a single ballot measure.
The initiative would allow voters to vote for any primary election candidate. Also, the top two finishers would advance to the general election regardless of party affiliation.
Currently, voters can voter in only one party's primary, and each party's nominee advances.
Elections officials have not yet finished determining whether initiative supporters submitted enough petition signatures to qualify the measure for the ballot.
