What Was That Flow Chart Thingee?

A Berry Picker writes: "I voted early today and it was pretty quiet. This closed primary for the Republicans mad for the most confusing voting process I have seen in 40+ years I have been voting. Did I understand the flow chart thingee that as a registered Republican, I could have voted for any of the three tickets while no one else can? How can this possibly be legal under our Constitution? How do we change this? By court action or referendum?"

Question: Did anyone see that weird flow chart at the polling place that seemed to show 8 or 9 different scenarios for casting votes, depending on how your are registered, affiliated or neutral? I've never seen anything like that before. Have you?
