    Missouri is a caucus state this time around. We’re having a primary and a caucus, both are open of course. The caucus is in March for every county in Missouri. The primary is being said to “not counting” so the caucus will be the one that will really show for anything.

    Great vid! Thanks for explaining the f*****d up way my closed caucus state makes things more difficult than it has to be and how I can register. Now I know where to get started. Thanks for your fine work spreading the word about Ron Paul. viva la rEVOLucion!

      It’s not the state, but the parties.  The primaries are private club business. A party nomination carries no force of law and is not part of our system.  It is nothing more than an endorsement by a club.  The problem is that the two faced republicrat party has spent decades making people believe that we have a two party system which makes it easy for them to perpetuate the lesser evil voting game.  We should change the state laws to forbid the parties from using public machines, public property, or public election officials in their primaries.  If they want to make their primaries open to the public but can’t keep people from voting in them both, that’s their problem. If your local Toasmasters voted to endorce a candidate, would your local Rotary Club be able to keep you from voting in theirs as well? There is no difference.

    I noticed some differences between the open/closed in this video and this website, which has links to every states registration website.  http://forum.grasscity.com/us-presidential-elections-2012/822874-register-republican-vote-ron-paul-republican-primary.html

    California is not an open primary state. IT IS CLOSED. If you live in CA, you MUST register Republican to vote for the Doctor in the primary. Please Correct this video before it goes viral. This is essential

    So then becoming a delegate in a primary state doesn’t really affect much?

    • http://www.facebook.com/dave.brillig Dave Brillig

      From what I’ve heard, we need as many delegates as possible. Becoming a delegate really helps us.

        See that’s what I had heard previously, but after watching this video it seems that may be the case in the caucus states, while the primary states have no say really and only report who the voters nominated.  If the voters in my precinct elect someone other than Paul, I don’t want to go to the convention toting some other candidate.

    I’m becoming a delegate in WA state. Looks like the Precinct Officer slot is open too ;)

    Are you sure that’s correct about North Carolina. I thought you could be registered as Unaffiliated or Republican to vote in the NC primary. Can someone please let me know.

  • Lindasvulovic

    New Jersey is not open , per se. Only if one is unaffiliated w/ a party can one DECLARE a party on Primary Day …@ the polls…& then vote accordingly….(RON PAUL!!!)  If you are a registered Democrat, I believe you must change party affiliation 55 days before the Primary Election.

  • Chuckicks

    According to the North Carolina board of elections, an unaffiliated voter can vote in the Republican primary; but he/she can only vote in that primary, i.e. you must decide at the poll which party’s primary you’re going to vote in.

    The map is showing the upper part of Michigan as pat of Wisc, this is incorrect as all of Michigan is a closed primary.  Please fix.

    VERY well done  – Thank you and I am sharing it with a select group of RP’ers.  Let’s hope the Cain etc lovers do not hear about too much of this though!  WE are the only chance RP has – let’s keep our strategy OURS!

    Montana was a caucus state in 2008 for the GOP. In 2010, the party decided it was a stupid idea and Montana went back to being an open primary state. While this is a good video for a general overview, it doesn’t describe the state convention process which picks the delegates to the national convention as well as appointing the electors in the electoral college. You can overcome the problems by becoming a voting delegate to either your state or national convention. The principle is the same as why GWB won in 2000. He won the electoral vote despite losing the popular vote to Gore. Use the conventions and get the right people elected.

    So am I reading this correctly?  If you are a delegate in a primary state, you just report what the people voted.  So a delegate only really has a chance to change something if you’re in a caucus state?

    • Dave Garry

      In PA, for example, the delegates are not bound by the popular vote – it is different in every state.

        Thanks.  I’ll have to check on Texas, unless of course somebody knows and would like to share :)

    I could use a little help, if anyone knows what I’m talking about…  I found this once, but am having a hard time finding it again.  Basically all this information in a big chart.  The states were colored yellow, blue, red etc.  With all the information right there, for anyone, in any state.  It was a full page chart on a pro-Ron Paul site. It may have even been an “official” Paul site. The chart was the  type of thing that would be easy to re-post everywhere, as a lot of people will pass over a video.  If that sounds familiar to anyone, could you please post a link.  Thanks.

    If you need any help recruiting “Blue Republicans” in Georgia, please let me know.  I have produced quite a few videos for Ron Paul.  Here is my channel.

    North Carolina is Semi-Closed. Unaffiliated voters can choose which party primary to vote in.
