Do you vote in Primaries/Caucuses?

Basically

1. Do you live in a closed or open primary state?
2. Do you vote in the primaries?
3. If you live in a closed primary state and aren't a member of a political party, would you vote in the primaries if you could?

The choices should cover every viable combination of those three factors.

I always vote when I can. I think this year I may be away at primary time and will have to do it absentee. In Vermont, we don't register by party.

Yeah I got the notice from my Election Manager in the mail yesterday that I would need to register with a particular party by such and such a day if I wanted to vote in the primaries, as I'm a registered voter but don't have a party affiliation.

I live in West Virginia which uses the closed primary election system.

I am registered with a political party and I normally vote in the primary elections.

No party registration here. The primary in my state (Washington) has always been meaningless because it was in (I think) June; but now it's been moved into March a week after Fat Tuesday. Err, Super Tuesday. I might actually bother to vote in it. Democrat only, no Republican primary that I know of, not that they need one.
Good opportunity for the R's to vote for whoever they think might lose to Trump.

I live in Oregon which uses the closed primary election system.

I am registered with a political party and I normally vote in the primary elections.

I have a number of friends registered Independent, who complain that they don't get to vote in the primaries. I've never understood why people who choose to not be a member of a party feel they should have a say in who the party candidate wil be.
Actually there will usually be a few non partisan ballot issues, like school bond measures or tax adjustments that are included in the primary ballot, and appear on an abbreviated ballot for Independents.

I am not registered as a member of a political party and I vote in the primary in the open election. Last time I voted for the least Trump republicans who all lost. This time I'll probably vote for Pete if he's still in it or the not Warren/Sanders candidate, or maybe one of the other Reps running. We'll see.


The democratic primary in Washington was especially meaningless because they used to have a caucus and a primary and the caucus was how the actually chose their representatives. That was actually dirty pool, most folks didn't really know that until shortly before the caucus. I'm guessing it didn't get much press because bernie won.

Why do you care about all those details, Joe? Obviously it took you a long time to post all that. What do you hope to find out?

I always vote, every election big or small, primary or not. And I always go to the caucuses, and have for at least 30 years. Not sure when WA will eliminate caucuses. In 2016 they held a primary and a caucus. Clinton won one and Bernie the other.

Is there still a caucus this year, since they moved the primary up?

Rarely vote in Primaries overall. Did in 2016 and probably will in 2020, but other than that there usually is no point. Buried in the enclave of Massachusetts 7, I find that it is pretty rare that there are two or more options for anything that isn't +10 in the polls (and my vote won't matter), or anyone who is sufficiently different than the status quo to bother voting for. Ah, the pain of mostly agreeing with all your local politicians...

It is a Super Tuesday state though, and the national Presidential candidates usually have enough variety at that stage to justify a trip if the Dem is not the incumbent.

Colorado will have a presidential primary on Super Tuesday. A few days later we will hold a caucus to choose a Senate candidate. Then in June we will have a primary for everything but President.

I will vote in both primaries and probably end up running the caucus.

When I lived in New York, it hardly mattered whether I voted in the presidential primary because one candidate had usually run away with it by then. This year, I'm in a Super Tuesday state, so I'm very excited to vote for one of the actual Democrats (as opposed to the couple who are just crashing the party).

Oh I cant even read that poll.

Yes I vote in our primary.

Last primary, I didn't vote vote for Sanders, or Hillary.We got to vote in June 0f 2016, Hillary was the winner by that time, and I didn't like her or Sanders. So, I left that blank, and voted for reps and the like.

I'm an independent in Virginia and this is my first primary here. We have open primaries and I intend to vote as a Democrat in their primary. Not sure, how I will vote. If Biden looks like he can pull it together I'll vote for him. If it looks like Mayor Pete will take over the mantel of the moderates while Biden implodes, I'll vote for him.

As a registered libertarian I have done both state conventions and primary ballots. What is really cool about it is I don't vote for the candidate. We are actually selecting unpledged delegates to the national convention rather than supporting a candidate.

Yes, with all the seriousness of the last election, I did enjoy the much needed levity of Comedy Central's coverage of your convention.

Planet X. Actually, it's planet Earth, but the way things work in the US, it might as well be somewhere else.

However, we have elections too, and I always vote.

I live in a state with closed primaries. In 44 years of being eligible, I have never missed an election, primary, general, and just voted in my first special election. I firmly believe that voting is our most important duty as citizens and when I hear someone say they don't vote, they lose a lot of my respect.

I think this is will be the first primary I vote in. All the other states I've lived in have closed primaries. I always vote in the general elections and the midterms (though for the 9 years I've lived out of the US, I'm skeptical that my ballot always got to where it was supposed to).

Is the fifth poll option (voting in more than one party's primary in the same election cycle in an open primary state) actually legal anywhere?

I can only answer for Colorado, No. You get one envelope with both parties ballots. I understand that if you send back both, they throw both out.

In Vermont the fifth option is not possible. When you enter the polls and declare which party you're voting in, you are given only that party's ballot.

In Michigan, the primary is open, there is no such thing as registering with a party, and you can vote any party 's ballot, but only one. (Only the big two actually hold primaries, but the law provides for the possibility of others, if they get enough votes in the previous election.)
