Arizona's primary system allows independents to take part--but they have to choose to vote in either the Republican or Democratic primary. Our Save Democracy AZ podcast explores the current system and what other options exist to give all of the state's voters equal access to choosing who will battle in the general election. We feature the most interesting politicians, elected officials, scholars, and pundits in conversation with Save Democracy host Steve Goldstein.

And, Coughlin offers insights on how changes to Arizona's party primaries could have given voters better options.

The number of independent voters continues to grow, and their impact was felt in a massive way in Arizona--as what was expected to be an extremely successful 2022 for the GOP didn't turn out that way in statewide races. Save Democracy host Steve Goldstein learns more from Thom Reilly, co-author of The Independent Voter.
