And I pay about 1 dollar a year to Piratpartiet (but we have had discussions on raising the membership fee).

As I understand it, in the US you are not allowed to vote in the primaries unless you are registered for the party having the primary. In the regular elections you need to be registered, but you can register as an independent.
