In a closed primary, you can vote only in your party\ s primary. in an open primary, you can vote in either party\ s primary.-open primaries, such as in wisconsin, allow the voter to vote without declaring a party affiliation but still must vote only in one partys primary. closed primaries require the voter to declare a partys affiliation (in many states, a number of days prior to the primary) and to vote only in his or her declared partys primary (this is true in maryland). only the blanket primary in washington and alaska allows voters to vote for candidates of different parties for different offices in the primary.
