Voters Pamphlet Rebuttal of Statement Against
Amendment 3's purpose is to restore the voter choice of our traditional blanket primary by replacing the unpopular pick-a-party primary. Party insiders may like pick-a-party primaries, but Washington voters do not.
Amendment 3 allows us to support any candidate regardless of party affiliation in one majority vote election. Parties still play a useful role, but we the people make the choices needed to hold government accountable. Amendment 3 means efficient, voter-friendly elections.
