Pick a Party

The Democratic Party hasn't done (or perhaps our crappo anti-majoritarian institutions haven't allowed them to do) a whole lot of nice things for Millenials since the downturn hit, but there's still no excuse for being registered as an "independent" especially if you live in an overwhelmingly Democratic city or state. 

You don't have to be thrilled about it, but this is the only way your vote counts in these places because the real election is the primary. Unless your state has open primaries where registered independents can vote, you don't get to vote in the only election that counts. Treat yourself to all the democracy. Pick the party that's closest to your views and vote in every primary for the least bad person.
