I changed my party, why am I still listed as . . .

A:

If you want to change your party affiliation (assuming you are already a registered voter), it will not take effect until after the next scheduled General Election (which happens each November).  

That is a NY State law, designed to protect candidates from unscrupulous voters switching parties just so they can put a particular candidate on the primary ballot, then switch back to their preferred party for the General Election.
