How many unemployed are registered democrats?

Post by sraney on Mon Jun 18, 2012 10:55 am

A friend's son in CA was working the polls and she casually mentioned friends and family members here in the east that are registered republicans. Apparently, her son was able to look up their affiliations. I can see having access to state rolls but what's the purpose of a national database - except the obvious - I thought this was private. Can anybody verify this, and if so, I can't think of a better way to screw unemployed democrats.

I have no idea sraney. But I agree. I suppose though, it would be easy to compile, you have to register by party here in PA and NJ and can only vote in that party for primaries.

Some states require that you register as either Democrat or Republican in order to vote in any primary, and are expected to vote a straight ticket in the general election. Since I became eligible to vote in 1974, I have never voted in a primary because of this. I know many people who feel the same way. Getting the numbers through who is affiliated with what party wouldn't be very accurate. Rhode Island is trying to make primaries "open", some states are, but as it stands now, only the die hard R's or D's register with their party. One reason for low primary turnouts.

As far as east coats states being mostly Republican, I can tell you that RI is a "blue state" with an Independent governor!

I've worked political campaigns for over 40 years. We get Voter Indexes or Voter Rolls from the local county registrar. In Riverside County, they can be purchased BY THE CANDIDATE for $5 for the first thousand names, and $1 for each additional 1000. They list all registered voters by street address. Political affiliation and telephone number is also given. My lists were sent to me via email in Excel. (It was fun confirming my neighbors who were Republicans. My guesses were 100%.) I was phonebanking for both local, state and federal offices for the California Primary June 5th.
BUT... I know of no national database that us peons are privy to at this time. I'm sure that there is one...
