Mississippi voting party registration

Star Rating 10/17/2009
This applies to all voting in Mississippi, one cannot register as a member of any party. We have open primarys where Mississippian's chose to vote in a party primary as they arrive at the polling site. Voting in the Republican primary one election and the Democrat primary on the next is a common occurrence driven more by the candidates for a particular office. For instance, one may have voted in the Democrat presidential primary since the Republican race was decided or uninteresting, then voted for the Republican candidate in the general election. Then the following year, the same person may vote in the Republican primary for mayor where only one Democrat may have entered, then vote for anyone in the general election. In truth, most Mississippians are independent conservatives with small memberships in the Republican or Democrat Parties being the norm.
