Riverside County’s Registrar of Voters announced on Monday afternoon, November 26, that SusanMarie Weber won her long-sought seat on Palm Desert’s City Council. The Libertarian Party of California congratulates Weber on her dedication to civic duty, her informed and intelligent approach to campaigning, and her highly cost-effective campaign.
Weber won her close race by only 45 votes, a fluctuating margin that shifted in her favor throughout the three-week ballot counting process. The tally published Monday afternoon, November 26, shows Weber with 6,153 votes to Bill Kroonen’s 6,108.
Weber expects to be sworn in on December 13 to continue her civic involvement as a voting member of Palm Desert’s City Council.
Please visit her campaign website at http://www.susanmarieweber.com/ and send her a congratulations.
Also, there was this surprising announcement on November 2:
Record-Breaking CA Libertarian Voter Registration
The Libertarian Party of California proudly announces that California’s Libertarian voter registration numbers have increased by 15% up to 108,736, according to the most recent California Secretary of State’s Elections Division Report of Registration. The number reported is for the close of registration, October 22, 2012, 15 days before the November 6 General Election.
The previous Report of Registration showed 94,620 registered Libertarians as of September 7, which was 60 days prior to next week’s election. During the 45 days between September 7 and October 22, a phenomenal 14,136 Californians swarmed to register to vote Libertarian! (This is strong evidence that’s being used in the anti-Prop. 14 lawsuit, that voter interest during the June elections is nowhere near as high as it is in the two months before the November election, making the June election dramatically less representative of California voters’ desires.)
Richard Winger, publisher of Ballot Access News, further reports that county-by-county Libertarian Party voter registrations increased between the 60-day report and the 15-day report in all but two counties: Mariposa and Mono. Libertarian voter registration increased in 56 of California’s 58 counties.
Although the deadline to register to vote in this election has passed, California needs even more registered Libertarians to show that voters are not going to support politics-and-business-as-usual in our state any longer. Help us send that message to our legislators. Encourage your liberty-loving friends to register to vote Libertarian. The Web address is easy to remember: RegisterToVote.ca.gov.
