7. I thought Massachusetts had open primaries, but it turns out that
Edited on Sat Sep-22-12 01:49 AM by No Elephants
if you are registered Democrat, the only ballot you can get is the Democratic ballot, period.

The only way you can get whichever ballot you want is to register "unenrolled."

If you think candidate A would be disastrous for your state, I think you should be able to vote against candidate A in the primary, regardless of how you are registered..

Honestly, I wish we had a federal elections law.
