Democrats win suit on technicality, stop voters from having their say on change to single ballot primary

Court blocks ‘top-two’ primary referendum from appearing on 2014 ballot::

"This referendum sought to change Montana’s primary elections by having the names of all candidates for a particular office — Democratic, Republican, Libertarian and other minor-party candidates — appear on the same ballot in the June primary. Voters would cast their ballot for someone from the full list of candidates.

The top two vote-getters for each office, regardless of party, would advance to the November general election, under the referendum."
