Americans Elect: Ron Paul Rising, But Still Needs More Sign-upsSubmitted by Mary Meehan on Tue, 05/08/2012 - 13:11
Ron Paul now has support from over 9,000 AE delegates and needs
1,000 more to meet the first requirement to be in AE’s online primary this month. A lot is riding on that primary and the AE online convention in June. They may be the only chance for Dr. Paul to be on the ballot in all 50 states in November.
The second requirement for drafting him for the AE competition is tougher: 1,000 delegates from each of 10 states. He doesn’t have that yet from any state--although California is nearly there. The other nine states with the highest Paul totals are: Florida, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, and Washington.
Calling all Paul supporters from these states! And from all other states, too! You can help push your state into the top ten--and then over the 1,000 mark. (If you’re a Republican delegate, you shouldn’t sign up yourself, but you can urge others to do so.)
Dr. Paul still leads all other potential AE candidates, although former
Louisiana Gov. Buddy Roemer is rising faster that he was before. It now
seems that there may be only one primary vote--on May 22nd. If Ron
Paul folks kick into high gear, we should be able to qualify him for that vote. We have from now through Monday, May 14, to do it.
If you haven’t signed up already, you can do it this way:
1) Go to www.americanselect.org.
2) Select “Sign Up” and follow the steps there. You’ll need a password and must provide info they need to verify that you’re a registered voter in your state.
3) Be sure to click your support for Ron Paul in the appropriate place.
4) Write down your password and keep it handy so you’ll have it to vote in the online primary and convention.
5) Ask for their e-mail updates so you will be alerted when it’s time to vote.
Once you have signed up, you can urge family, friends, and other
contacts to do the same. If you know folks in the key 10 states, please make a special effort to urge them to sign up with AE as Paul supporters.
People who are, or plan to be, Paul delegates to coming Republican
conventions shouldn’t sign up. If any are asked whether they are AE
delegates, they have to be able to answer truthfully that they’re not. They can still, though, urge others to be AE delegates for Paul.
If you’re not a Republican delegate, and you want an insurance policy
so that Dr. Paul can be on the ballot in all 50 states, please sign up today with Americans Elect.
