Closed-most states use, can only vote in the party primary for which you are registered. Open-most southern states, as long as your registered you can vote for whichever primary you want as long as you don’t vote in bother primaries. Some states till use caucuses but it isn’t like a king caucus, it is still people from the states voting.
