Yes, you can still vote Republican in the GENERAL ELECTION in November.
You can vote for anybody you wish once you step in the voting booth, no matter how you are registered.
I am registered Independent in Florida and vote for who I feel is the best candidate each general election (no matter which party they are associated with).
HOWEVER, as a registered independent you may not be able to participate in your state's republican or democrat primary (or caucus in other states).
