Other states with top-2 primaries show mixed results (access required)

Some critics worry that California’s 31st Congressional District reflects what will happen in Arizona if voters pass the top-two initiative to change the state’s primary election system.

Although the district leans Democratic, four Democrats split up the vote in the June primary, allowing two Republicans to advance to the general election.

Others predict that Arizona would benefit from such a system, saying California’s elections have become much more competitive and participation among independents has increased.
