D.C. Registered Voters - Libertarians, Democrats, "No Party," GOP

DC "lost" 65,000, voters in the past year, according to the Board of Election'a website. While 20 or so new Libertarians register every month, during the past 14 months, Democrats dropped from 376,000 to 337,000, Republicans dropped from 31,000 to 27,000, and "No Party" dropped from 87,000 to 76,000, with the total dropping from 501,000 to 446,000. D.C. seems to have cleaned the voter roles in June 2013, since tens of thousands of Democrats (and 4 Libertarians) disappeared that month.






























(Democrats and "no Party" in thousands, Libertarians actual numbers, GOP in hundreds.)

Libertarian news clip: Washington Post

(Melina Mara/The Washington Post) - Democratic candidate for D.C. mayor Muriel Bowser
Buy This Photo
Don’t even think about hitting the pause or stop button. D.C. Council member Muriel Bowser (Ward 4) has secured the Democratic Party nomination, but the race for mayor is far from over. The next phase of the contest is sure to be tough and interesting.
Libertarian Bruce Majors has entered the ring. But unless another high-profile challenger arrives, the city will be focused on the battle between Bowser and heavyweight independent D.C. Council member David Catania (At Large). In a recent Post poll looking at a possible race between the two, 56 percent of voters supported Bowser and 23 percent supported Catania.
Read the rest at The Washington Post.

DC Libertarian voter registration































Currently DC Libertarian registration is growing by approximately 10% monthly.

There was an initial jump after December 2012 when it finally became legal to register as a Libertarian, followed by a plateau until new registration forms were finally printed in March 2013 and then made available in public libraries and at the Department of Motor Vehicles (previously you would have had to have been already registered to vote, and then changed your party affiliation on-line). 

Registrations then picked up again when we announced candidates who would be on the ballot.

Libertarians Badhwar and Moulton on WPFW

It can be heard online at WPFW. See March 27th, 11 am Democracy Politics Hour. She praises Libertarians at 7:55. Our segment runs from minute 30 to 45.

*****************************************************************************

Martin Moulton, Libertarian for Statehood "Shadow" Representative reports:

Deborah Simmons, WashingtonTimes/@No1newshen (follow her twitter), who interviewed us instead of Eugene Kinlow (who was away), opened our segment with "I love Libertarians!" ... "Libertarians suggest freedom!" She echoed several of Pranav's points. Even in the previous segment, she kept bringing up — with democratic "the rent is too darn high slate" — the issue of DC being hampered by being such a one party town.

D.C.'s Historic First Libertarian Primary Tuesday

D.C.'s Historic First Libertarian Primary Tuesday - PR.com

Get out and vote!

Dear Friends and Neighbors,
 
Please vote in the primary election today to liberate and empower individuals to succeed. Tell the establishment that we will challenge their authority, which rewards the power elite and special interests who feed off the misery of the least advantaged.
Vote Pranav Badhwar for Ward 6 on April 1st. And vote for the full slate of Libertarian candidates. Write-in our names on any ballot, even if you are not a registered Libertarian. The slate is here:http://www.dclibertarians.org/candidates/

Also, please donate so we can create cards and doorhangars. http://www.pranav4dc.com/contribute. We will go door to door until the Nov. 4th election to promote decentralized, rights-based alternatives which treat root causes of poverty, crime, and homelessness, in contrast with traditional policies which expensively bandaid symptoms and increase taxes while keeping people mired in poverty.

With fewer taxes and regulations we can:

Improve Schools: Charters effectively deliver education at about 40% of the cost of the almost $30,000 in per pupil spending. Reduce DCPS' central planning authority and put authority over the budget and operations in the hands of traditional public school principals and parents who can adjust staffing to meet the unique needs of their students. Improve educational effectiveness to reduce poverty, crime, homelessness, and taxes.

Create Jobs: Eliminate or reduce business licenses and fees, including the need for six years of education and experience for interior decorators, one year training for pest control applicators, and thirty-nine other restrictions on professions which don't require a college degree and which erect barriers for those already disadvantaged by government schools. Increase jobs to reduce poverty, crime, homelessness, and taxes.

Reduce Crime: Free police to pursue non-violent drug offendors and focus them on real crimes of violence, theft, and fraud. Reduce street violence by eliminating aggressive prosecution of victimless crimes. Stop criminalizing non-violent drug offendors and stunting their ability to get jobs and housing, forcing them into a cycle of poverty and crime and making them into wards of the state. Protect rights to reduce poverty, crime, homelessness, and taxes.



Thank you,
Pranav Badhwar, www.pranav4dc.com
