Other Important Info:
Under a new voter approved method, all candidates (except presidential candidates), including those preferring major parties, minor parties, or no party at all, will be on the same ballot. Voters will be able to freely choose among the candidates regardless of their party preference or the candidate's party preference. Only the top two vote getters for each office including U. S. Senate, U.S. Representative, State Senate, and State Assembly will advance to the November 6, 2012 General Election.
