I like Ron Paul, but I won't support him as long as he is affiliated with the Republican Party...or the Democrat Party for that matter.

Why can't we send donations to Our Assistant Treasurer? We can trust Charlene to do right with the sheckels can't We?

Thanks Eric. Will go have a look see.

Comment by Scolos Narbarson on November 26, 2014 at 2:19pm

Hmmm. Les see. 1,030,040 registrations needed, divided by 53 Legislative Districts = 19,435 registrations needed from each district.

Of course this is just numbers and doesn't reflect the distribution of voters reality of Our State.

Comment by Michael Thompson on December 6, 2014 at 5:59pm

Scolos, The registration requirement has just changed because of the passage of a new law. The new requirement is estimated to be around 58,195! That is a significant drop. It is still a lot of registrations to get, but that will help our efforts greatly!

That breaks down to roughly 1,099 needed for each district.

That's great news Michael. Thanks. Looks like it is time to bone up on procedures.
