    Had a nice conversation with Mrs. Mack on Wednesday evening. Asked my husband to switch affiliation from Rep to Dem, as he has been voting primarily Democratic for years. Mrs. Mack had said it was not too late to change affiliation to vote in the primary next week, but the town ofice was adamant that the change would not take effect for 90 days and specifically NOT to expect to vote in the primary. Any comments?

    Virginia – when switching parties (ex: Republican to Democrat), there is a 90-day period before one can vote in the primary. However, there is still time for a new voter to register as a Democrat or an unaffiliated voter to register with a party and vote in the primary. Hope that helps.
