Alabama has a new law that prohibits voters from switching their political party allegiance between a primary and any subsequent runoff election. The bill’s sponsor, State Sen. Tom Whatley, said, “If you vote in one party’s primary, you can’t switch to the other’s runoff.” A key part of the rule is that voters aren’t required to cast a primary ballot to be able to vote in the runoff.

The text of the law reads: If an elector votes in a primary election, he or she may vote in a subsequent primary runoff election only if he or she voted in the primary election of the same political party for which the runoff election is being held. Secretary of State John Merrill plans for the law to be enforced during an anticipated September runoff in more »
