Hi! I thought you would be interested to know that in the State of Vermont,
an Independent candidate may chose
to appear on the Ballot after their name,
rather than "independent".
I am registered with the Secretary of State Elections Division as the
UNITED STATES MARIJUANA PARTY
and that is how the official election ballot will be printed.
I also want to point out that the Elections Division committed alleged fraud because they had me listed as a "draft" candidate from May 18, 2010 until the end of July 2010 which was total and complete fraud because I was a certified candidate for the United States Marijuana Party (under the laws for independents) on May 18, 2010.
This fraud hurt my ability to collect campaign donations and therefore I am praying that Deb Markowitz, Secretary of State, who has a history of fraud in the elections, does not win the Democratic Primary.
It would be a horrid shame to have such a corrupt official win the Primary. Vermont can't afford a Rod Blagojevich type trial, but I may have to file against Deb Markowitz in federal court because I am so sick of her abuse against me.
The state is holding a special election to fill the seat vacated by John F. Kerry, who has been confirmed as U.S. secretary of state.
The state primary is Tuesday, April 30. The last day to register to vote or to change party affiliation for the primary is Wednesday, April 10. Enrolled voters may only vote in their party primary; unenrolled voters may select a primary to vote in without changing their status.
The special election is scheduled for Tuesday, June 25. The last day to register to vote in the election is Wednesday, June 5.
To register to vote, one must be at least age 18 by the date of the election, a U.S. citizen and a resident of the municipality in which you are voting.
