You cannot vote for Ron Paul in California primary unless you are registered Republican by 5/21Submitted by Bugs in the machine on Wed, 05/09/2012 - 01:13
I had 2 separate conversations from friends in San Diego County today that weren't aware they had to be registered Republican to vote for Ron Paul.
One of them received a democratic sample ballot that has Ron Paul on it, but after I mentioned this, she checked it and discovered it does point out the new law that requires you to be registered Republican in order to vote for Republican presidential candidates (ie Ron Paul) in the upcoming primaries in June.
Another conversation was with a coworker and big fan of Dr Paul. He also wasn't aware of the registration requirement. By the end of the day, he and several members of his household were sending their registration in. I also threw it out there that they should consider registering as a RP delegate in the event Dr Paul wins their district.
In the process, I also discovered that the delegate registration page at www.ronpaul2012.com/delegate is no longer available to the public (the page exists, but says it's private). That's where I signed up as a delegate a couple months ago, so I'm not sure why it's changed now.
The point is, the word about registration requirements in California really needs to be spread, and by the end of this week!
