My father was a Republican and much to his dismay, I became a D. So I would switch parties any year he was running for an office to vote for him in the primary.
Ohio’s closed primary system, as well as the proposed “challenges” exclude independent voters, and discourages voters from voting for the person and not the party. Jennifer Brunner impressed me with how she made sure voters could do so manually despite inexplicable opposition, but she is way off the mark on this.
