tribalism sucks doesn't it? Going through the same thing here with the opposite side if you know what i mean. i'm only interested in voting for people with actual loyalty to this nation and it's people. Can you point them out? I know of like 5 out of all branches of gov combined and both parties! It's pathetic!
It means a political party we identify with and vote for and support their political ideology.
uhmbutyou can change it whenever you wantso you're not really registered or anything
Even as a registered democrat, you can vote for a diff candidate whos not dem. Im a registered dem and voted outside of that
IS THIS A THING
@Lillie_xo Yes; it's a thing in many states. (Crazy, right?). My state doesn't have party registration, though.
@Jamie05rhs oh okayso likewhat even is itwhat happens when you're registered
@Lillie_xo. This occurs when you register to vote. On the form you fill out, they ask you to state your party affiliation. So when you submit the form, you are therefore registered as a member of that party. This allows you to vote in the party's internal elections (primaries).
@Jamie05rhs ohthat makes sense i thinki can't tell if its good or bad
@Lillie_xo I prefer no party registration.
@Jamie05rhs is it optional?
@Lillie_xo That's a great question! I think it is, in most cases (if not all). I think if you don't select a party, it just means that you won't be able to vote in their primaries.However, the rules are somewhat complicatedFor example, in California, if you choose "No Party Preference" as your party registration, then you can't vote in the Republican primary. (The Republican Party chose to have their primaries be closed, meaning that you can only vote in them if you are a registered Republican. I think this is because Republicans are a small minority in California, so they didn't want their elections to be manipulated by outside groups.)You CAN, however, vote in the Democratic primary, but there are extra hoops that you have to jump through. You have to specifically request a Democratic primary ballot.

How's that working out for you?
What you are now?
Turned Republican in '19.
Not the answer you'd be glad to hear.
Never been part of that 💩💩💩 political party.
But we need you 🤠
Nope. I will only go back to the Democrat party if they go back to being the traditional Democrat party. Currently I'm done with supporting U. S. politics. Both parties just aren't good and too unbalanced.
