Which AVTS accounts are running open primaries this year and when do they start early voting?

There may have been some confusion on this, so I will elaborate.  Open primaries (using GES parlance at least) means putting a party-specific races for more than one party on the same ballot.  Closed primaries means seperate ballots for each party.  Open primary accounts sometimes use party preference races, sometimes they just disallow crossover.

The AVTS does not currently handle open primary ballots.  I need to know if we have any AVTS accounts run open primaries this year.  I would also, for the record's sake, like know what GEMS accounts and States run open primaries and/or use party preference races.
