I am registered unaffiliated(UNA) and plan on voting in the primary sometime this week. As most of you probably know, unaffiliated voters get to choose what party’s primary they get to vote in.
Especially because of the Presidential race, I’d like to have my vote for Obama heard in the Democratic primary. On the other hand, our (Moore County) contests for state senate, state house, and county commission only have Republicans in the race.
Since my individual vote counts more in the smaller races, because those races stand to have a much greater impact on my local situation, and because the Republican primary winners will be the eventual office holders, I am leaning towards voting in the Republican primary.
Anyone have a compelling argument as to why I should choose the somewhat more symbolic route and vote in the Democratic Primary?
