Fiscal Detail and Notes
This bill allows for an open primary election.  The Department of Secretary of State would require a General Fund appropriation of $162,400 in fiscal year 2015-16 for ballot printing.  This analysis assumes the department would need to print enough ballots for 75% of the total enrolled and unenrolled registered voters.
