Harrisburg – Bipartisan legislation introduced in the Pennsylvania Senate seeks to change primary elections in PA to an open format. In an open primary, independent voters not registered as Republican or Democrat can vote for their party of choice during a primary election; currently, only those registered to a party can vote in primaries. Pennsylvania is only one of nine states that continues to use the closed primary system, which is increasingly seen as undemocratic. In PA there are 1.1 million registered voters who are not affiliated with a major party.
