Currently, Georgia is one of twenty states with an open primary system in which anyone can vote in either the Republican or Democratic primary. The voters “declare” their political affiliation on the day of the primary election.
Across the nation, there are 27 states, including 4 in the South (Kentucky, West Virginia, Florida, and North Carolina) that have closed primaries.
As a matter of personal opinion, I believe that Georgia needs to enact legislation that closes it primaries and only allows those voters who have registered with a particular political party, prior to the primary, to vote in that particular party’s primary election.
