The Alaska Supreme Court has ruled that a proposed initiative that would change the state's elections process can appear on the ballot.

The measure would create an open primary where all candidates would be listed on a ballot and create a ranked-choice voting system for general elections.

It also would require additional disclosures for certain campaign contributions.

Attorney General Kevin Clarkson last year said the measure violated a so-called single-subject rule.

The Supreme Court ruled the initiative's provisions are logically related.

The group behind the measure says the initiative is expected to appear on the November ballot.
