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

    Tecoya inspired this question.

    Are you currently registered to a party that you no longer identify with?

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

    Yes, I'm a registered Republican, but I remain so because Nevada has a closed primary.

    Same in KY....I am registered Republican, and have been since I could vote. I retain my affiliation mostly because the alternative is not a better option. Recent changes in party mentality and actions (inaction), have however created no motivation to support the party with my vote. Being debased by those who expect my support has also tempted me to drop affiliation out of spite....I find it likely I am not alone in this and feel the party is at risk of damaging the base.

    I recently re-registered as an independent after a lifetime with the Republican party.
    I have CDO, it's like OCD but the letters are in alphabetical order like they should be.

    I think it's interesting that the first three people to respond have dissatisfaction with the Republican Party.

    Not being a registered republican does not mean you must register as a democrat does it? Or visa-versa.

    Be "undeclared".
    Be "Independent".


    I feel that even if you don't vote for the party you're registered to you are in a small way giving them more power by staying registered to them.

    How else are they going to know they need to "fix" things if people remain registered to them?

    If thousands of people registered to party _____________________ suddenly registered for some other party, wouldn't that send a valuable message?

    I was on the Republican Central Planning Committee for my county. I can assure you that as much as Republicans are resistant to change when looking on the outside, they're even more resistant to change on the inside.

    But yes Dragonfly, a person can simply unregister without registering for a new party.

    I'm a lifelong registered Republican and I don't agree with much the modern-day Republican party does, but they are still closer, or at least potentially so, than any other party in existence. It really doesn't matter, I don't vote party lines anyhow.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Then why not re-register as "undeclared" , "independent", or even "libertarian" or something?

    Why let the republicans think you're still on board with them when clearly you're not?

    Well im a registered Democrat just because its practical and the Greens or Socialists have no chance of ever winning here (so practical realist reasons), and also so i can vote in the primary.
