Will the League allow people to register as Republicans at these events? If so, will they turn in the forms of those that do?

When you REGISTER to vote, you do not declare a party. You are simply registering to vote in all future elections. Once registered to vote, it's in the primary elections that someone must declare a party -- but this is not required in the general election, such as the one coming up on Nov. 6.
