PARTY AFFILIATION DEADLINE – Wednesday, April 12, 2017 Notice to “INDEPENDENT” voters:  As of January 1, 2006 voters previously declared as ”INDEPENDENT” are by law now classified as “UNAFFILIATED”.  An unaffiliated voter may declare their affiliation with a political party by filing a Declaration of Party Affiliation form. They may vote in the Primary Election. An unaffiliated voter may chose instead to declare affiliation with either the Republican or Democrat Party at the polling place on the day of Primary Election. Who MUST File:

  • You must file a Declaration of Party Affiliation form if you wish to vote in the Primary Election of a political party other than with which you are currently affiliated.

You DO NOT need to file if:

  • You are currently affiliated with the political party in whose Primary you wish to vote.
  • You have never declared a political party and have never previously voted in a Primary Election, (unaffiliated), you may declare your party affiliation at the polls on Election Day. Your choice of party can then be changed only if you complete a Declaration of Party Affiliation form and file it with this office.
