Election 2020

To Join or Not to Join....

You do not need to be a member of a political party to vote in a general election?

Even if you do join a political party, you are not obligated to vote for that party's candidate. You can vote for any candidate on the ballot.

In some states, you need to be a party member to vote in that party's primary (Check out this list). 

Party Platforms

A party platform is the  formal statement of its basic principles, objectives, and positions on major issues. The platform is one way political parties try to connect with the public and attract voters. Party Platforms, especially those of the major political parties, can shape state and national elections and policy by reflecting changing issues, controversies, and public visions.
