Loyalty Oaths?

Though a registered Libertarian, I can vote in Virginia's open primary. After seeing the news that the Virginia GOP will require voters to sign a "Loyalty Oath" to cast a vote in the primary.
Less than a week after announcing that only two GOP presidential candidates qualified to appear on their ballot, the Republican Party of Virginia has adopted a new measure that may leave voters in the state scratching their heads: a loyalty oath.
On Wednesday the Virginia State Board of Elections approved a request from the Virginia GOP that will require voters to sign a loyalty oath in order to participate in the state’s presidential primary on March 6. A spokesman for the state’s election board tells ABC News that although some details are still in the works, voters wishing to cast a ballot must take the pledge.

I do believe that if I'm able to, I will be voting in this cycle's primary. I have to see this for myself.
