Each political party has the option of allowing people who register to vote without stating a political party preference ("no party preference" voters, formerly "decline-to-state" voters) to vote in their presidential primary election.
Are you a “no party preference” voter?
If you checked “I do not want to disclose a political party preference” on the voter registration form, you will not get a ballot containing the names of candidates running for president. Your ballot will contain all other races and ballot measures.
