a voter who is not registered with a political party. Not only that but a voter that does not, again, DOES NOT, lean strongly toward one of the two parties and resemble-in all important respects-either Democrats or Republicans.

And independent voter is a United States citizen registered to vote. When the United States started, all voters were independent voters. There were no organized political parties until the election of 1800. Political parties are self-created societies which seek special status for themselves the way royalty have special status in European governments and seek to destroy the independence of all voters.
