GOP activist cites concern on ballot qualification

Talk about basic stuff. Longtime Providence GOP activist Dave Talan is worried that Republican presidential candidates may not receive enough signatures to wind up on the Rhode Island ballot.

According to an e-mail he sent today:

WE NEED YOUR HELP TO GET ALL THE REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES FOR PRESIDENT ON THE RHODE ISLAND PRIMARY BALLOT !!!

 

Each Republican candidate for President needs to get 1,000 signatures on his nomination papers, in order to get on the ballot for Rhode Island's March 4 Presidential Primary. We have been doing this since last Thursday (the first day we were allowed), and they must be in to local Boards of Canvassers by 4:00 P.M. on December 26.

 

Based on our progress so far, we are very concerned that WE WILL FAIL in this effort to get our 10 GOP candidates on the ballot.

 

Let me explain why we are monitoring this so closely, and why we are getting concerned about getting all the candidates on the ballot. It would seem like we have enough people doing this (with 59 volunteers getting signatures; and 22 meetings, parties or events where we are collecting them. But we are not getting the turnout at these 22 events that we expected; due to weather, the time of year, conflicts with Patriots' games. etc.  Less than a third of the number of people who normally attend GOP Committee meetings are showing up at these events. So we have to keep up the push, or else we will FAIL in our goal to get everyone on the ballot.

 

CAN YOU HELP? We are looking for additional volunteers to get signatures for the 10 GOP candidates. Even if you can only get signatures from your immediate family members (and maybe a few friends & neighbors), it would be a big help. RESPOND TO THIS E-MAIL IF YOU WOULD BE WILLING TO TAKE SOME PAPERS!  We will get them out to you.
