HEATH Chamber urges voters to become 'unaffiliated'; deadline is June 14 LINCOLN – To have a greater choice of candidates this coming election season, the Northern R.I. Chamber of Commerce is urging voters to consider disaffiliating from political parties, and choosing which primary election to vote in on pri- mary day. If you are a member of a political party, the deadline for disaffiliating is next Thursday, June 14. "In many cases," writes the cham- ber, "the only contested races will take place in the primary election on Sept. 12. In order to vote in a party's primary election, you must either be a member of that party or unaffiliated (independent) and be registered to vote in the district where you live. To register to vote, check your affil- iation, or to change to "unaffiliated," visit and have your driver's license in hand. "If you would like to have more choices on who to vote for in the primary election, it is recommended that you register as 'unaffiliated' so that you can choose which primary to vote in depending who is running in the primary."
