out of curiosity, when you register to vote, do you bother to write-in(optional) your 'party', or do you keep it blank?

i have mine listed on the register..and of course, end up getting all kinds of party-associated political mail around election-time! LOL!

  • In the state in which I live, you have to register in some party or else you cannot vote. In the primaries, one must vote in the party in which you are registered. In the general election, you can vote for any candidate on the roster.

  • In CA- I am no party affiliation. I can vote in the primaries by requesting the ballot of my choice, by phone. I am a permanent absentee voter.

  • I switch it up, depends on the race I am most interested in at the time. This time I was a Republican because I hate Roy Blunt, and I don't want him to get Bond's seat. But he most likely will courtesy of sin tax laws.
