I'm a registered Independent. I guess that makes me a no-party person.

I think it varies by state but in NC I can vote in the Republican primary but not the Democrat one. Go figure.

Probably b/c the Republican party normally has the biggest problem w/ 3rd parties taking away the votes. So some Democrat leaderhip at some point probably saw this and wanted to make that kind of thing be able to happen

not a registered member of any party. I have voted 3rd party in every major election save one. And that was as much a vote against the mccain/palin ticket as probama. I tend to skew left on most social issues (gay marriage, legalization, abortion rights, etc), but also have many libertarian and fiscal conservative leanings. I have voted for every party from the US Taxpayers to Socialist in the past.

I'm a conspiracy theorist. If enough people believe in something, I won't.
