Not all states are like that though-some do allow independent voting in primaries.<quoted text>What you're saying is that I've surrendered__maybe so, maybe not so.
By remaining registered as a (R) I'm able to participate (vote) in every race in my district's primaries and then choose whoever I wish in the general elections. I'm a super voter__if there is something that needs voting on I'll be there.
My (I) and (L) friends sit at at home until the general election rolls around and then vote for whoever happens to be on the ballot.
That's not a winning formula__just saying.
One er muh friends said to me one time, I ourght writ my congress person and get them to writ a bill that allows independent voting in primaries.
Don't know ifn muh freind were a D or an I or an R or a pepsicolar label type voter-didn't care-didn't matter, he'un made a good point lol.
