I voted today, for my first time. :)

Of course, since I registered as "No Party Affiliation", I couldn't vote in the Presidential part of the primary election. Only local candidates, which I still think is very important. People tend to overlook local government and candidates, thinking it's not important as national stuff. It's just as important, because you can't look at the puzzle, without looking at the pieces that form it.

And on an ending note, I didn't realize how many political parties there were. o_o; Besides the main 2, there are 4. Geez.

In addition to Dems and Reps, there's: Green, Reform, Libertarian, and Independent.

My boyfriend swears there must be a Communist Party somewhere, but a) probably not officially registered =P and b) you couldn't switch between Capitalism and Communism every 4 years. Heh.

I think there may actually be more than 6 "other" parties alone besides the usual two that always win (ugh). I'd have to check our newspaper again, but I recall a lenghty list of multiple third parties.

You couldn't vote in the Presidential primaries simply because you didn't declare which side you were on? Um... MAYBE if you had said "I'm Repiblican" and they automatically gave your vote to Bush I could slightly understand the thought process (although it is still blatantly wrong) but to deny you a vote because of that...? Please tell me that I'm missing something here, because I think that is utterly ridiculous. I don't have a party affiliation declared either (nor do I wish to) but I had to choose a side to be able to vote as well. Why...?
