In a Primary, your registered party determines which ballot you can vote. Examples: If you are registered as a Republican, you can only have a Republican Ballot. If you are registered as a Democrat, you can only have a Democratic Ballot. If you are registered as Unenrolled, or if you registered with a political designation (such as Green-Rainbow) you may choose which ballot to take. In an Election, it does not matter which party you are enrolled in. There is only 1 ballot, and you can vote for whichever candidate you choose regardless of party.
