Play it safe - Register Republican Now!

In an attempt to limit Ron Paul's reach, the rules across the nation are suddenly being changed where you must now be a registered republican to vote in the primaries. This, according to an article by the pro-Ron website, Gambling911.com.

Anyone with websites, all people passing out literature, all conversation with people about Dr. Paul must include the urgent plea for them to register NOW as a republican in their state to protect against this happening in other states. Here in Michigan, we too are having a 'open' primary...yeah right - and our leader is Saul Anuzis. You better make sure you tell everyone - 'Register NOW as a republican' - don't take a chance that the rules will stay the same in your state.

Republican Registration - Clarified (perhaps)

Researching this issue this morning... In past primaries, the Republican Party has submitted its notification to the California Secretary of State that "decline to state (political party affiliation)" registered voters would be allowed inclusion in the primary for that party. It appears that this time around, the Republican Party did not make the deadline of September 23, 2007. The Democratic Party and the American Independent Party did, as in past years. For more info - see history and updates about the State legislation SB 28 that establishes these rules. www.sos.ca.gov/elections/elections_decline.htm#deadlines
If anyone has official confirmation otherwise, please advise. In the meantime, the California Secretary of State website should be a sufficient resource for this information. As of right now, it looks like Republican Party registration will be necessary to vote for Dr. Paul in the California Primary. And this IS important information to share with those with whom you are spreading the word about the Ron Paul Revolution. BJL

Deadline

If the GOP wanted to make the deadline, they would have, but are afraid of the man with two first names garnering votes from non-brainwashed GOPers. If it was a critical deadline for one of the so-called "top-tier," you can bet they would have made it. As for the Dem's, there was nobody to be that worried about.

Primary date problem could be stopped

Hey, This issue of primary date changing could be stopped if enough registered republicans like myself who has been a republican all my life would start contacting the state republican parties and threaten them that we will never vote republican again if you change these primary dates. For those that they have already changed the dates, need a much stronger dose of the same thing and maybe they will extend that deadline or ELSE!

pass the word

I tried...

I registered as a republican back in June, but because I never received any notice my paperwork was processed, today I decided to check my voter status on line. It said I'm still registered as a democrat! I'm trying to convince myself this was just an oversight, but I can't help to wonder if it isn't a conspiracy!

Tomorrow I'm filling out the paperwork again, at the courthouse (Arapahoe county CO), in person. As far as I know, Colorado's deadline for voting in the republican national primary is still in January, but I'm not taking any chances. I will hold my temper and be polite, but I will not rest until I'm registered as a republican! And I will officially be a republican by October 12th!

Primaries

Personally, I think this is a very short-sighted move. It is going to do more to drive FUTURE VOTERS away from the GOP. They may get want they want in the immediate future; it's going to bite them in the butt down the road.

Running an ad in the Concord or Union paper in NH about Oct 12

Hey I just called the Concord paper.... Is there anyway someone in NH can run an ad stating a few key points about Ron Paul and that if you want to vote for him, you must Register as a Republican or Independent by Oct 12. I called and the deadline is today, but you can run an ad for $142 that is 4 1/2inchesX4inches... I am waiting for a call back from the Union, but the deadline is today too.... Can some people in NH organize it and get it in today????

Be Nice to the Supporters of other Candidates

The delegates will show up to vote for their nominee, and if no one gets a majority, the whole thing will be up for grabs. (The process may vary state by state.) Once the delegates get to the national nominating convention, it's possible that a really good speech by one of the candidates could win him the nomination.

This happened in the last Libertarian nominating convention where the third place candidate moved up to win after a couple of ballots. (It was very exciting.)

The dominant parties usually pare down the field so that doesn't happen, but we know Ron Paul won't quit, so he'll be there. We need the supporters for candidates who bow out or fail to throw their support to Ron Paul.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Check your state

You have to remember that the primaries are basically a structure created by the political parties and not a government mandated system. There are no laws that determine which person a party puts on the ballot, but rather an agreement within the party of how that person will be determined.

Each state has its own agreed on way of casting their vote for the parties. The official candidate will be selected at the National Convention for each party. The parties can change their rules anytime they want. It's their decision. The primaries are just a way to gauge popularity when they have multiple candidates. There is no law that you have to win a primary election or that the winner has to be the candidate. Smaller parties don't even go through the primary process.

I'm just saying this to remind people that this is not an official process and changes aren't the establishment trying to "screw us". It might be the GOP trying to screw us, but not the government. Look up the rules for your state that will allow you to vote for Ron Paul to be considered as the Republican candidate.

Or Independent in many States

According to the below link you can also register as an Independent in many states:
I have copied content from the link and pasted it below. I went to the PA voting site and it says you have to be registered in a political party to participate in that party's primary. Sounds like a general statement that could be interpreted in different ways.

http://www.primarilypaul.com/ron-paul-in-the-primaries

State/Territory column takes you to that state’s elections office or voter information site. Yellow indicates you need to register as a Republican or independent if you want to vote for Ron Paul in the primary. I have also highlighted, in red, states that have a looming deadline.

Every state is different and I can’t fit every detail about every state on a small page so visit your state’s website and contact them if you have questions. One important thing to all the young Ron Paul supporters out there, is that if you are a first time voter you may need to register in person, you can’t just mail in the form, contact your state for more information.

CA GOP ONLY counts Reg GOP votes

This has been confirmed by many meetup group folks here in Cali

the CA GOP will ONLY count primary votes from Reg GOP Voters, so you CAN vote "Undelared" here but it wont count towards gettong Ron the CA GOP votes & nomination! So PLEASE take a few Min & re-register & get ALL other non-GOP RP supportes to do so also. rememeber being affiliated with the GOP if only Temporarily to Vote for Ron in primary is a SMALL price to pay for freedom!! ( besides its not like the whole contrived "Left / Right" paradigm is real anyway )

California and New York need a big push right away!

Time is of the essence for people to switch in these two as they are the biggest population states, are closed primaries, and closing soon! There will be NO second chance.

We need some tv advertising there asap, along with flying banners, billboards, and all there or anyone knowing people in the state to let them know about Ron immediately!!!!

This is unbelievable

I am so disgusted by this. I have just recently jumped on the RP band wagon. I have never been so passionate or adamant about my vote in my life as i am now because there is finally someone to vote for that I wholeheartedly agree with. I am a new yorker and a registered independent and am changing my party TODAY. I am appauled by this and cant beleive how F#@$$in corrupt this society has become.

Oh, yeah.

So glad to have you aboard, but don't be surprised by any of the machinations you see in the coming months to keep our guy from getting elected. We have a big fight on our hands. Welcome, mate.

Welcome to the club jfarbe

Glad to have you aboard and you are so correct. Many of us had some idea, but not anywhere near the degree until starting to hear and see videos, etc. of people like judges, former CIA heads, and so forth.

How did you hear about Ron and what made you switch?

I tell people all the time that others are not stupid if they don't know, only if they know and don't investigate further and consider other possiblities. I was brainwashed for many years too.....than goodness for the internet and for the savvy in the know.

Don't Freak Out Too Much

A lot of states will still allow undeclared registered voters to choose one party to vote for in the primaries. In other words, the primary hit is going to be on registered democrats in states that were open voting states, but now are not. Don't get me wrong, this hurts Paul, but I don't want everyone to freak out and start thinking its over. The majority of the nonrepublican vote he will attract is undeclared voters. Please tell everyone about the changes and encourage unregistered voters to either register republican or undeclared.....but please do not freak out when you are telling people about this cause it could make a lot of people just give up thinking he has no chance and thats simply not true.

Little Blue Box - on the Right

.
How easy could this be? Look on the right side of your screen, and there is a little box to click on.

That will get you to the right site to register.

If not, it is: http://www.gop.org/

I followed the link, and found this information on registering to vote in TN:

"For more information on how to get registered to vote in your Tennessee, visit: http://elections.utah.gov"

Just thought I would share. (Yes, I have reported the error to www.usayfoundation.org.)

GOOD NEWS FOR TEXANS...

ANY ELECTION Attorneys supporting Paul

I know in my state Wa. issues like this in the past have been taken up in Court.

Are there no Attorney's familiar with Election Law... Certainly this violates citizens rights...

ESPECIALLY when dates and rules have changed NEAR THE END OF THE GAME..

That BS

find out if your state is closed or open

If your state is open, then you do not need to re-register. If closed, then in order to vote in the primaries you need to re-register before the deadline.

What happens if...

... someone voting on the Democratic ticket writes in Ron Paul? Those votes wouldn't be added to his Republican votes, would they? I've never seen the rules on this, but assume there are some.

This was considered in PA.

This was considered in PA. Those write-in votes will NOT count towards the Republican tally.

Do they want President Hillary Clinton?

That's what I would ask any of these so-called Republicans that are seeking to change to closed primaries to prevent Ron Paul from becoming president. They have an unprecedented opportunity to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. I suggest that they take it before it is too late.

Drain the swamp!

Do they want President Hillary Clinton?

You hit the nail right on the head eBob. That's been the game plan all along. The globalist elite will make sure she gets whatever she needs to win. It's not about Republican or Democrat anyway. Never has been. The bottom line is, elect the candidate that will do their bidding. Government-controled medicine, here we come!

It's a bad situation...

The global elitists are licking their chops. They'll let Hillary and Obama slugg it out for a while, before announcing them as Democrat dream team that can't lose - except to Ron Paul. Of course, they won't acknowledge that. And they'll be sure to suppress this idea in the Republican ranks as well. Current Republican front runners will be eaten alive by the Clinton team of professionals, especially when the elitists have the Bush team greasing their path to the White House. Bush isn't loyal to the Republican party any more than he's a Texan. It's all about the International interests and their big money. What's in Paraguay, anyway? Answer: The new Bush family 100,000 acre compound. Guess what Country doesn't have US extradition treaties: Paraguay . Go figure.

Summary: Clinton's are handed the baton of International Leadership (again), and Bush is outta here! Only Ron Paul can derail this scenario by mobilizing the masses that usually don't give a damn. Stir it up!

Check this link for deadline dates in your state

This link will give you a chart for all states listing the deadline for people who are not currently registered Republicans to re-register to the Republican party.

This is only necessary for states that have closed primaries. The chart will tell you if your state has a closed or open primary.
