Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer released the latest voter registration numbers earlier this month, and it highlighted an important trend.
Voters who considered themselves independent or just hadn’t selected a party now lead in registration by the narrowest of margins — fewer than 100 people.

Tucson attorney Ted Hinderaker, among others, is looking to ride that wave and change the state’s primary system as a leader of the new Save Democracy, Inc. The Show spoke with Hinderaker
about how much of the Save Democracy pitch has to do with primaries.
