"Your party affiliation is usually only important in primary elections. Many states have “closed” primaries. This means that you can only vote for your party’s candidates in its primary election. Learn about the different types of primary elections."
It depends on where you live and which elections are important to you.

Thank you, I tried to make a poll for voting but failed lol. I had checked to see if my state allowed independents to vote in democratic primaries and they do. I just got sick of being on their mailing lists. More importantly, I don’t feel that the party represents me and I’ve never liked the right wing. Never. Although, most independents I know tend to be right wing apologists without fully committing to the lunacy. I managed to unsubscribe from the infestation of DNC emails for the most part. I’m just curious what people think. I don’t think I will change my affiliation. I just loath the passive-aggressive, shrugged shouldered, “well, what could we do???” politics of neoliberals. I do think a demographic shift is coming up the pike, but consolidation of corporate power will be a hard thing to take down. The judiciary will be on their side for years to come and they’re always scheming ahead.

I think it depends on the state you‘are from! I would check how voting in your state works especially during primaries

Thank you, it’s okay to do that in Colorado. It’s a bit disingenuous of me because I’ve never voted for an (R) in my life and don’t see that happening, ever. I feel estranged with how fiscally conservative Democrats have become. Concerning both sides of the aisles I feel like, “I’m affiliated with none of you.” lol. I just don’t see corporate capture of DC abating in the future, they have it pretty well knit up. I could use some of Cenk’s optimism and I hold out some hope for the younger generations shifting the political landscape in the future.
