They were likely trying to vote in a primary in this anecdote. You can't vote in a primary for a party you aren't registered with and the ballot is for that party only. For a normal election they don't know who you vote for since it's all the same ballot.

If anyone could vote in any primary, how many republicans do you think will show up to vote for the democrat they think has the worst chances of winning the presidential race?
