It’s up to you, NY

Election reform advocates bashed New York’s closed primary system for leaving millions of voters locked out of next Tuesday’s presidential primary.

The state has a closed primary, only allowing people registered with a particular party to cast ballots in that party’s race. Voters can’t cross party lines — and independent unenrolled voters can’t vote in any primary.

If you exercise your right to register Independent or Green, well, NY doesn’t care about those rights.
