The Virginia State Board of Elections has given the state Republican Party permission to require voters to sign a loyalty oath before being allowed to participate in the March presidential primary:

According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, voters will be required to sign a document that reads: “I, the undersigned, pledge that I intend to support the nominee of the Republican Party for president.”

Virginia does not oblige voters to be registered to a party before participating in the primary. Voters are welcome to vote in both Democratic and Republican primaries unless they are held on the same day.

Honestly... what a bunch of assholes. If they don't want Democrats voting in their primaries, then they should work to change the state law to require registration by party. But forcing voters to sign a loyalty will only condition voters to feel not so bad about breaking oaths.
