Actually jlizgar, to vote for Dr. Paul in the primaries, ya may need to be registered as a Republican ...  (independent thinker or not :-)

Here in Illinois that's not an issue, but many states do require voters to be registered as either R, D, Green, Libertarian, etc ...  to be able to vote in the primary.  AND whatever party you are affiliated with determines which ballot you you will be given at your polling place.

Just thought it might be good to mention this here ...

Not a real problem tho ... you can always register as an Independent, Libertarian or whatever Party you might wish to align yourself with later on down the road ... you're not locked into it!

I've heard several folks say, they plan to "hold their nose" as they ask for a Republican ballot - but that they think its worth it just to be able to vote for Dr. Paul.  We sooo need to see him win the primary/nomination!

Anyway ... check your state ... all this discussion may be a moot point if your state doesn't require you to register as an R or D, etc ... before the primary.

Liz,

Here's some info on Maryland's Primaries taken directly from the Maryland State Board of Elections website at: http://www.elections.state.md.us/voting/primary.html  

You'll notice the word  "generally" is used a couple of times, so just to be absolutely sure - if I were you, I would call your county clerk's office to clarify the need to register as an R to vote in the primary ... and while you're at it, be sure to find out if there is a cut-off date for registration.

Hope this helps!

What is a party primary?

The two principal political parties are required by law to choose their candidates for the General Election in Party Primary Elections. Although it is up to the parties to decide who may vote in their primaries, generally only registered voters affiliated with a principal political party may vote in that party's primary.

How can I vote in a party primary?

Generally, you must be registered with a party to take part in the party's primary.

May I change parties?

Yes, except during the 12 weeks before the primary. You may submit a new voter registration application or a written request to change your voter registration to your local Board of Elections. If you request a change in party affiliation during the 12 weeks before the primary, your request will be held at the local Board of Elections and processed when registration reopens.

Suppose I don't wish to affiliate with a party?

If you do not choose a party, you will be recorded as "Unaffiliated." You will generally not be able to vote in party primaries, but you will be able to vote in any nonpartisan primary held in your jurisdiction, such as a primary to select nominees for the board of education.
