Word of the Day | Jungle Primary

Aka Blanket, Open, or Top-Two Primary

A jungle primary is an election in which all candidates for elected office run in the same primary regardless of political party.

It’s also known as the “blanket primary,” “open primary” or “top two primary,” since the top two candidates who receive the most votes advance to the next round, similar to a runoff election.
