California Party Picks

Ancestry.com has released a database of California Voter Registrations, 1900-1968. The Ancestry blog has the scoop on how some celebs picked their political parties.

Lucille Ball is registered as a Communist in 1936 and 1938, and was later asked to testify before Congress during McCarthy’s Communist witch hunts.
In 1944, Ozzy and Harriett Nelson are both registered as Republicans. Harriett was employed as an “actress;” Ozzy as an “orchestra leader.” [Link]
Note: A few of the 30 million names in the database are of people who never appeared on television.
