I’m registered as a Republican. I’ve commented earlier about one of the 12 Republican candidates — so you can at least guess one of the Republican candidates I will not be voting for.  Deciding which to vote for is harder. And as I mentioned earlier, I have to be careful about promoting anyone, lest I get into ethical questions due to my work situation.

That said, it is very easy to decide not to vote for anyone on the Democratic ticket. So I won’t be switching parties.

But wait, there is a fourth party — the Constitution Party — with no candidates to vote for. Sounds like they have a very active membership there.
