If you are in the following states, you know that tomorrow, February 5th, is the day to vote in the presidential primaries. Note that I said primary and not caucus. A primary is simply a voter casting their ballot for a particular candidate and going about their day as usual. A caucus is like a pep rally of sorts, where supporters of several candidates gather to boost support, media attention, and more importantly persuade undecided voters. Polls close at around 9pm in most of the states listed below. *Something I didn’t know: Since I am an Independent, unfortunately, I can’t vote because elections in New York are both closed primaries in which you must be registered as either Democratic or Republican. However some states, like New Jersey, allow same-day party declarations, if you really want to get your vote in. Sadly, New York does not.*
