Andy Prior, Chairman of the America’s Party of Texas, discusses the need for eliminating one of the many regulations that limit voter choice in Texas — the primary voter screenout. In Texas, unlike any other state in the nation, anyone who votes in a primary election is barred from signing a nomination petition for candidates seeking access to the general election ballot.
Texans for Voter Choice believes that all voters have an interest in having real choices in the general election — whether they voted in a primary or not. The Texas Voter Choice Act, introduced in the Texas House in 2017, eliminates the primary voter screenout. If you agree that we need to remove barriers for candidates so that we can have more meaningful choices on our ballot, join our campaign to #flushthesystem.
