AZ Democrats to debate allowing independents to vote in party's presidential preference election

Update: AZ Dem party rejects the effort



Arizona Democrats are setting the stage for a vote Saturday on an emergency resolution to allow independent voters to participate in the party's 2020 presidential preference election without first registering as members of the party.

Under the state's closed presidential preference system, Arizona's 1.3 million independent voters must change their registration to a designated party by Feb. 18 to vote in the presidential preference election. The presidential preference election is scheduled for March 17.

Democrats and some independents have long argued the closed primary creates confusion and discourages participation by the second-largest bloc of Arizona voters, independents.

State committeemen with the Arizona Democratic Party are expected to debate at a Saturday meeting whether to make "every effort, legal or otherwise," to open the election, according to the resolution obtained by The Arizona Republic.

2. This will help out my mom

She registered back to Democrat so she could vote in the primary. If Biden wins she's registering back to Independent.
