Throwing Away My Vote

I registered to vote back in 19-whatever and my party affiliation has not changed: NPA (no party affiliation). In Florida, this means I cannot vote in most primary elections — so be it. In the 2008 Primaries, I wasn’t able to vote for the either the Republican or Democratic candidate I liked.
