UPDATE: Campaign for Liberty needs 153,636 precinct leaders to meet its goalSubmitted by ShannonOBrien on Wed, 02/04/2009 - 02:34
The average number of registered voters per precinct is 1,100 nationwide. (All of these numbers, including the numbers below are from 2008). As we get more on the local level, I used my area as an example so you can get an idea of the numbers.
NATIONALLY: 169,000,000 registered voters total in U.S.
means approximately 153,636 precinct leaders needed in U.S. total.
We currently have .9% of all precinct leaders needed nationally. (1521 precinct leaders total at C4L)
But if we add up all the members, accounts and precinct leaders (126,314 total) we COULD be at 82% of our goal!
Ron Paul got 1.2 million votes nationally.
WASHINGTON STATE: 3,515,393 registered voters (approx. 512 registered voters per precinct)
6,862 precincts total in Washington state, 6,862 precinct leaders needed in Washington state.
We currently have 1% of all precinct leaders needed in Washington state. (96 precinct leaders)
But if we add up all the members, accounts and precinct leaders (4043 total) we could have 58% of our goal.
CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT 1:
359 precincts, unknown number of registered voters.
We currently have 3% of all needed precinct leaders (12 total). We could have 21% (77 members and precinct leaders).
SNOHOMISH COUNTY: 372,636 registered voters
There are 714 precincts in Snohomish county. (521 registered voters per precinct)
We currently have 1% of all precinct leaders needed in Snohomish county (8 precinct leaders). But if we add up all the members and precinct leaders (accounts aren't listed) we could reach 14% of our goal (103 total).
In conclusion, it might be better for us to concentrate on contacting the members and accounts that are already signed up on Campaign for Liberty and encourage THEM to become precinct leaders first. I think it would more quickly and efficiently win over our precincts for liberty.
