    IMO, 90+% of all politicians are corrupt and/or incompetent...why on Earth would I ant to support them in ANY way?
    The reason to register with a political party is that in many states the primaries are closed, so you have to be a member of the party to vote in the primary. As I stated elsewhere in the thread I live in the KC area. When we moved to the Kansas side of the metro I registered as a Republican when I registered to vote. Reason being is that in Kansas we have one party that basically controls everything, the Republican Party. However, for all intents and purposes there are two Republican Parties in Kansas, the Moderate Republicans and the Conservative Republicans. Other than when Kathleen Sebelius was Governor, the Democrats have no power in the state. So if you want to fully participate in the state and local politics, you need to register as a Republican. Our State Representative is a moderate Republican. She is very pragmatic and I like her. The last thing I would want is for her to lose in the primaries to some nut job from the Brownback wing of the party. So I registered Republican so I could vote for her and candidates like her.

    I am not registered to any party- only registered to vote.

    My voting habits are all over the map though.

    Locally, I prefer to vote for libertarians. State wise, I tend to vote for whoever is best at the time. Nationally, I tend to support smaller parties.
    I have a similar set of requirements for my vote. If one candidate is just all around awful I will vote for the other major to block them, however if I get a choice I will vote for the best option, I swing more Libertarian but have voted for all three parties at one time or another.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    So, you're never received a primary ballot? If you have, the party whose ballot you receive is the party you registered for.
    I never "chose a party" when I registered to vote. Maybe things are different in my state.

    As undecided I get to pick the best of sentences of them all and switch at will. I voted other.

    You left out the Democratic Party of which I am a registered member.

    Don't make that mistake again.

    If anyone in Texas says they're a registered anything, they have no understanding our system and probably shouldn't be voting.

    I am registered as an independent in Virginia. Candidate party affiliation doesn't interest me nearly as much as the candidate's views of government and it's responsibilities.

    Re: What Party Are You Registered To?

    "With which political party are you registered" reads and sounds better.....
    a little better....
    Independent, as I recall, I detest being categorized, or being placed in some little box....no political party fully suits me....one may call me a fiscal conservative and a social liberal.The truth is what interests me , not political ideology.
