  1. This is going to be interesting to analyze where they fit in regards to the Democrats, Progressives, and Liberty Unionists (if that’s the correct demonym).

    What are the requirements to become a ballot-qualified minor party in Vermont? The Pirate Party is interested.

  2. The procedure is easy but the timing is very severe. A group must file documents showing that it has town committees in any 10 towns, by Dec. 31, 2009, if it wants to be a qualified minor party in the 2010 elections. But a group that doesn’t do that is also free to submit petitions for its nominees, and those petitions aren’t due until September 2010, and they permit a party label. So there are really 2 ways to be a party in Vermont.

  3. ACORN is very active in VT. ACORN connected in many way to WFP social-justice census worker/ voter enrollment / registration contractor payments from US are the issue in Brooklyn USDC-NYED tomorrow (Tuesday) in Brooklyn, NY. (ACORN v US) — home of much of the WFP leadership.
