  •  Make up a special ballot for those folks? (1+ / 0-)

    Sure, it would be largely empty -- unless there are some people running as "Independent" for some offices -- but it would shut them up.

    In many places, you actually don't stay unenrolled (or "undeclared" or whatever it's called) -- if you take a party ballot in the primary, you're considered a member of that party until you disaffiliate. Last fall we did a good business in disaffiliation forms as people were leaving the polling area. Most people told me they prefer "undeclared" because it cuts down the number of GOTV and candidate robo-calls they get bothered with. It has nothing to do with how knowledgeable they are, or how they'll actually vote.
