On Feb. 5 "Super Tuesday" primaries and caucuses, here's where independents are (and are not) allowed to vote

Other rules and customs may apply. For example, in California "decline to state" voters may vote in the Dem primary but not the Repub primary, and they must ASK for a Dem ballot or else they will receive a nonpartisan ballot without the candidates names.

OPEN means independents can vote; CLOSED means only party registrants can vote.

Alabama - Primary Open
Alaska - Caucus Open - Dem/Closed - Repub
Arizona - Primary Closed
Arkansas - Primary Open
California - Primary Open - Dem/Closed - Repub
