Thursday, March 14, 2013 – That 15% spike in Libertarian voter registrations back in October was no fluke. Our Party’s voter registration keeps climbing, even as overall voter registrations decreased!
Richard Winger reports in Ballot Access News that, “In raw numbers, because the state registration as a whole declined, all the parties have fewer registered voters now than they did in October 2012, except that the Libertarian Party and Americans Elect have more than they did then. The current total for those two parties is the highest in the history of each of them.”
How high is “…the highest in the history of…” our Libertarian Party?
For last November’s Presidential Elections, there were a record-smashing 108,726 registered Libertarians in California. According to Winger’s county-by-county survey, the new numbers collected from each of California’s 58 counties as of February 10, 2013, show that there are now 109,618 registered Libertarian voters in California, an increase of 882 registered voters in just three months since the elections. This number might change when the official Secretary of State report is released soon.
But wait, it gets better.
This increase in registered Libertarians came despite the voter registration rolls being purged of voters who hadn’t voted in the two most recent elections. The purge lowered the total number of California voters, and reduced the total voters registered for other parties, but the Libertarian Party of California grew despite the purge!
The growth we’ve enjoyed over the last several years has been incessant, and now seems unstoppable. You can fuel our Party’s growth with just a few simple actions.
- Memorize California’s online voter registration address, and guide people to it at every opportunity you find. If you haven’t registered to vote Libertarian yet, try it and see just how easy it is. RegisterToVote.Ca.Gov
- Donate to the Libertarian Party of California. Unlike another political Party in California, we’re not going into debt to spread our influence. Your donations keep us solvent and growing.
- Become a voting member of the Libertarian Party of California. Only dues-paid members can vote in our Party’s convention and help us determine the right path for restoring liberty in California.
- Get involved in our upcoming convention in Sacramento the first weekend in April. There’s an amazing list of speakers on topics of interest to libertarians, and the prices to attend are lower than they’ve been in the past five years.
Nothing is more potent than an idea whose time has come. Restoring liberty in California has got to be that idea. It’s our time to make it happen, and it’s your opportunity to become a part of it.
