Subject: Jesse’s voter registration
Dear [Experienced delegate],
Jesse registered successfully online, printed the confirmation page and then called the Auditor’s office. They told him they did not have a stamp to give verification to his completed form, but suggested he call the Republican Party to determine if he could caucus. The woman who answered said it is a rule of the Washington State Republican Party to require voter registration by February 5th. We missed the date!
She apologized and shared our disappointment. She said she wished that weren’t the rule.
Ted and Jesse will be at your office this evening and our family will be attending the caucus in the morning. Jesse and Martha are interested in observing the process.
Thank you for guiding us through this. We look forward to learning lots more.
——————————————————————————–response from [experienced delegate]: NOT TRUE! The rules are attached. There is no rule which disallows him from Caucusing! The caucus is bound by the rules attached! He simply certifies that he is Republican and will not caucus as Dem, etc.
The latest the party tried was saying Feb 27th! I hadn’t heard Feb 5th for a while.
The rules state that any registered voter is allowed to caucus… period!
I am responding under another email but wanted to get this one off! DO NOT ASK THE PARTY THESE QUESTIONS! They are not giving correct information but misinforming voters! They are really worried that Paul might bring in many new Republicans… they cannot abide that , and that is one of the symptoms of which I wrote!
There is already a big flap in King county over rules violations. I will have more instructions for you. But, remember, you are the ones who know the law, and the rules! Go to the caucus and CAUCUS, including your son! If the party has an objection they can raise it at the credentials level!
More info coming. Sorry for the disjointed email.
For liberty and the rule of law,
