Nebraska Lawmakers Propose Election Changes

(A-P)

Nebraska lawmakers are taking a look at making changes to the state's elections.  One bill would bind party delegates to the vote of the people.

 

Senator John Murante of Gretna says now there is no requirement for who delegates vote for. His bill would require 80 percent of delegates to vote for the candidate voters chose.

 

Murante also says he may introduce an amendment to move the state's primary up by a month to the second Tuesday in April.

 

Senator Al Davis of Hyannis introduced a bill that would allow independent voters to participate in a Democratic or Republican primary but he says he doesn't expect the bill to advance out of a committee.
