Who can vote in the primaries?
Anyone who is registered to vote 10 days before the primary is allowed to vote in the Republican or Democratic primary. Whether declared Republican, Democrat, or Independent you can vote in the open Republican primary or the open Democratic primary.
I turned in a voter registration application. Am I registered to Vote?
Just because you turned in a voter registration application does not necessarily mean you are registered to vote. Once your application has been processed by your local board of registrars, you should receive an acknowledgement from the registrars indicating the status of your application. This acknowledgement will usually be a voter identification card confirming that you are registered to vote. However, if your application was incomplete, you may receive a letter requesting additional information to complete your application. If you are unsure about the status of your application, you can always call your local board of registrars and check.
Is Mitt’s run for the White House done if he doesn’t win 1st in
No, not by a long shot. He is leading all Republicans in the delegate count with ‘two silvers and a gold’, and a second place in Michigan would obviously be more disappointing than a first, but will still carry the banner of the consensus conservative candidate.
What is a consensus conservative candidate?
Mitt is the standard bearer of the Reagan Coalition of social conservatives, fiscal conservatives, and national security conservatives. Senator McCain has strongly favored a comprehensive immigration approach, which included work visas for illegals, higher CAFE standards for automobiles, which hurts the American automobile industry, and the (in)famous McCain-Feingold legislation that limits campaign contributions.
Governor Huckabee, on the other hand, has supported in-state tuition for illegal immigrants, raised numerous state taxes, and pardoned more inmates than the three previous Arkansas Governors combined.
Why should I vote for Mitt Romney for President?
With Romney as President, Alabamians can trust that their taxes will stay low, their country will have a strong, proactive national defense, and a leader who will support pro-family legislation as he has lived family values.
Q. Does my vote really make a difference?
A. "Just" one vote can and often does make a difference in the outcome of an election. Here are some recent examples of real elections decided by one vote.
- In 1997,
representative Sydney Nixon was seated as an apparent one vote winner, 570 to 569. Mr Nixon resigned when the State House determined, after a recount, that he had actually lost to his opponent Robert Emond 572 to 571. Vermont State
- In 1989, a
, Lansing Michigan millage proposition failed when the final recount produced a tie vote 5,147 for, and 5,147 against. On the original vote count, votes against the proposition were ten more than those in favor. The result meant that the school district had to reduce its budget by $2.5 million. School District
- In 1994, Republican Randall Luthi and Independent Larry Call tied for a seat in the Wyoming House of Representatives from the
area with 1,941 votes each. A recount produced the same result. Mr. Luthi was finally declared the winner when, in a drawing before the State Canvassing Board, a pingpong ball bearing his name was pulled from the cowboy hat of Democratic Governor Mike Sullivan. Jackson Hole
- In 1997, South Dakota Democrat John McIntyre led Republican Hal Wick 4,195 to 4,191 for the second seat in Legislative District 12 on election night. A subsequent recount showed Wick the winner at 4,192 to 4,191. The State Supreme Court however, ruled that one ballot counted for Wick was invalid due to an overvote. This left the race a tie. After hearing arguments from both sides, the State Legislature voted to seat wick 46 to 20.
