Political party enrollment is optional but in order to vote in a primary election of a political party, a voter must enroll in that political party, unless state party rules allow otherwise. Currently, the democratic and republican parties' primaries are closed so only registered members of the respecitve parties can vote in their primaries. So, students who want to vote in a primary election in New York should plan to declare a party affiliation when registering.
