In state of New York, already registered voters that want to change their party affiliation in order to vote in the 2019 primary election need to submit a change of party affiliation before November 2018. November. 2018. That's correct, BEFORE… NOVEMBER… 2018.

Thanks to NY state law section 5-304.3.

A change of enrollment received by the board of elections not later than the twenty-fifth day before the general election shall be deposited in a sealed enrollment box, which shall not be opened until the first Tuesday following such general election. Such change of enrollment shall be then removed and entered as provided in this article.

And clarified under "Changing Party Enrollment" in November 2018 Election Law Update.

A new voter both registers to vote and enrolls in a party (optional) simultaneously by submitting a voter registration application to the board of elections. Any registered voter may thereafter submit a change of enrollment to switch political parties at any time. However, the change of party is not effective until the Tuesday following the next General Election, provided the change of enrollment was received by the board at least twentyfive days before the General Election (Election Law § 5-304 [3]). The statutory delay for enrollment changes has withstood constitutional challenges. (Rosario v Rockefeller, 410 752 [1973]; VanWie v Pataki, 87 F Supp 2d 148 [NDNY 2000]).

Have a great day!

Next time someone mentions the Alabama abortion law, ask them if they think women who are jailed as a result should be allowed to vote.

This new law perfectly illustrates Bernie’s thinking with preserving the right to vote for all Americans.

Next time you see/read a non-Bernie supporter bemoan the Alabama abortion law or any other unjust law, ask them what they think about people being disenfranchised as a result.

Why is Biden getting positive press and are some or most polled Dems so simple minded to just auto vote Biden?

I don't understand the appeal of Biden. When it comes to healthcare he wants more of the same broken system….it has failed. Why are people going for Biden. Is it really as simple as well he's been there in the white house so he knows how to run it mentality?

Are we Americans really that simple minded? I'm just stumped at the stupidity and simplicity of that mentality.

Bernie did so well with Fox News town hall, he was performing so well with farmers too based on his message for non compete with outsourcing.

I have very low hopes for the Dems if Joe wins the primary and may consider dropping the party altogether because I'm so disconnected.

Anyone else understand where I am?

Does having both Sanders and Warren running split the progressive vote in two, making it more likely Biden will win?

I wonder if having both Sanders and Warren running makes it more likely Biden will win? It basically splits the progressive vote into two, while the rest of the people will vote for Biden.

I like Warren a lot as a candidate, but I’m worried she functions like Jill Stein did in the general elections by taking votes away from the leading candidate most likely to beat Biden, Sanders.

In all the polls I’ve seen, if you add Sanders’ s and Warren’s votes together, they add up to the percentage planning to vote for Biden. As the race continues, I’m sure Warren is going to continue to go up in the polls, but it's likely won’t ever get enough to beat Biden and Sanders. So it seems she basically takes votes away from the progressive candidate that actually has a chance at beating Biden.

Now I could be very wrong about this. It’s still so early and a lot could change. But if nothing substantial changes, this is the direction it seems things would go.
