Rhode Island Legislature Passes Bill Abolishing Straight-Ticket Device

On June 18, the Rhode Island Senate passed SB 8072, which eliminates the straight-ticket device. However, because the Senate amended the implementation date of the bill, it must return to the House for concurrence. The Senate version of the bill doesn’t take effect until 2015, whereas the House version takes effect in time for the 2014 election. UPDATE: actually, both houses passed a version that takes effect after 2014, so the bill is through the legislature.
