    Re: Registered To Party You Don't Identify With???

    I'm a registered Republican here in NH so I can vote in the primaries. I disagree with much of what the party does, but nowhere to the degree I disagree with the Dems, so to me it's a good affiliation. The only way I can find a politician who is just like me is if I run myself, and that isn't happening.

    If so, why not change your status? Also, how long have you felt this way?
    Nope. Not registered.

    Why let the republicans think you're still on board with them when clearly you're not?
    Oh, they know I'm not, I use my membership to complain long and hard about their policies, something I couldn't do if I unregistered. Registration essentially means nothing if you don't vote party line.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Currently registered as a Democrat.

    I change party affiliation fairly regularly depending upon the election.

    I believe 2009 was the last time I was registered as an R, for the gubernatorial primary.

    For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    You're obviously lying. New Hampshire is famous for it's primaries being semi-open. You can be undeclared/independent and vote in either the Republican or Dem primaries.

    Who do you complain to and when? And why couldn't you still do that as a registered independent?

    I'm not registered to a party, but I am registered to vote, and I do. I'm 24.

    I've never registered to a party. Here in Texas, if you voted in a primary, they stamped your voter card with the party's primary you voted in.

    I don't know how it is going to work now...we shall see.
