New Jersey Independents Officially Classified as 'Unaffiliated'


INDEPENDENT VOTERS
No political party? N.J. calls you unaffiliated (By LYNDSAY CAYETANA BOUCHAL, NJ HERALD) McCabe said New Jersey in 2005 passed legislation stating that as of Jan. 1, 2006, the category of independent voters would be eliminated. Any voter who chose not to affiliate with a political party or group was thereby classified as an unaffiliated voter.

It's the same thing here in Maine. I make a point every time I go to vote to say it's a shame that I can't claim my independence. Unaffiliated just sounds like you haven't made your mind up and ties into the two parties always claiming us as swing voters.
