Many voters across the country have left their political parties in favor of being an independent. According to Washington County Auditor Bill Fredrick, the same thing has happened in Washington County. He says it has been a trend for a few years. But he also tells us that he sees a slight jump in registration with a specific party around caucuses. He says a lot of people want to participate so they register again or for the first time. He also tells us that you can register for a party at any caucus location on the day of the caucus.
