If you vote democratic in the primary can you vote republican at election time in the state of Texas?

Yes, you can vote for a democrat in the primary and then for a republican in the November election. You will be affiliated with the Democratic party until December 31, 2008 though. But, because the candidates are all on the same ballot in the November election, you can choose whomever you want.. I got this from the following website: http://www.texasgop.org/site/PageServer?pagename=Candidates. Go to this website and click on the "Voter Information" link. From there, click on the ""New Voting in the Primary Elections and Participation in the Precinct Convention on March 4th "" link.. I also pasted the info from that link below:. If you are a registered voter in the state of Texas, you will simply choose your party and vote in that party's primary. To explain, we do not register by party in Texas. One becomes "affiliated" with a party by voting in a party's primary and the affiliation lasts for that primary year. As an example, if a voter voted in the March 2006 primary or April 2006 runoff primary, the voter affiliated with that party for the rest of that year, but on December 31, 2006 the affiliation expired. The affiliation means that the person may not vote in another party's primary or participate in another party's convention or sign an independent candidate's petition for place on the ballot if the independent candidate's position appears on the primary ballot. Note that in the general election in November, a voter may vote for whomever he/she wishes, regardless of how or whether he/she voted in the primary or runoff primary election, since all candidates are on the same ballot.

What is a Democratic-Republican?

The Democratic-Republicans was one of the first political parties in the United States , founded by Thomas Jefferson and James Madison around 1792. They originally called themselves the Anti-Federalists in opposition to the dominant Federalist Party that founded the new United States government. The Federalists favored a strong central government and held elitist values. The Democratic-Republicans supported states' rights, limited government, and a strict interpretation of the Constitution. In 1800, the Democratic Republicans won both the Presidential (Jefferson) and Vice-Presidential offices, as well as the majority of seats in Congress, causing a shift in the direction of government. The Judicial branch was still dominated by Federalists, however, and most heavily influenced by Chief Justice John Marshall, who ensured the federal government retained dominance over the states. The party split into the Democrats and Republicans in 1824, but were not the same as the Democrats and Republicans of the 21st century. The Republican Party mutated quite a few times over the years, becoming the Whig Party from 1833-1856, which then split into the Free Soil and Know-Nothing parties, as well as a new incarnation of the Republicans.

Is Mississippi a democrat or republican state?

Because the state of Mississippi does not offer registered voter statistics by party, we must judge either from primary elections (to see how many voters their are from both parties) or from general elections. Through primary elections we conclude that Mississippi is a state dominated by the Democratic Party. In the 2007 Mississippi Governor election, the Democratic Primary had a total of about 450,000 voters compared to about 197,000 voters of the Republican Primary. Also, in the 2008 Presidential Election, the Mississippi Democratic Party Primary had a total of about 429,000 voters compared to about 145,000 voters of the Republican party. Whereas in general elections we conclude that Mississippi is a state dominated by the Republican party. In the 2008 Presidential election the Republican candidate (John McCain) received about 725,000 votes while the Democratic candidate (Barack Obama) received about 555,000 votes. The total voter turnout for the election was about 1,290,000 voters. This is significantly larger than the voter turnout for state primaries such as the primaries for the 2007 Governor election where there was a total of about 650,000 voters, which is almost half the amount of voters that voted in the presidential election. This would support the theory that the state of Mississippi has a larger voter turnout in general elections because voters do not have to vote in affiliation with a party; evidently showing how it is more likely that there are more unaffiliated or independent voters in the state of Mississippi than there are Democratic and Republican voters.

States where urban populations are not in the majority typically swing Republican. Some states like, Texas and Florida have high urban populations, but Texas typically goes republican and Florida often goes either way. California with a highly urbanized coastal population also has a highly rural population in the southern valleys that vote democrat while a somewhat urbanized north valley often votes republican.
