Letter: Voter registration law violates rights

The law that requires voters to register with a specific political party in the presidential primary denies voters a fundamental right: the right to vote for the candidate of his or her choice.

I am a registered Independent. I support and oppose candidates in both major parties and vote accordingly. This law has denied me the right to vote as I wish and forces me to make a one-party selection.

This is not the way our elections should be conducted. We need the right to vote for a candidate of our choice regardless of party affiliation.
