That tally shows the Alaska Constitution Party with 3 registered voters.

131,805 Republicans
81,221 Nonpartisan (no party affiliation)*
74,843 Democrats
14,291 Alaskan Independence Party

Total: 500,394 registered voters.

*Someone can hopefully explain the difference between that and the first category in the comments.

    From http://www.elections.alaska.gov/doc/info/faqs.php

    “What are your definitions of “undeclared,” ” non-partisan,” and “other” on the voter registration application?

    A person whose party affiliation is “undeclared” may be associated with a political party, but does not care to declare which one.

    A person whose party affiliation is “non-partisan” doesn’t have preferences for one party or another.

    A person who has marked “other” as their party affiliation, is associated with a party that is not a recognized political party in the State of Alaska.”

    Mechanically, there’s no difference (you have access to all the same ballots) it’s just for “keeping score,” as it were.

    The American Independent Party (California)
    has registration of 413,032 on October 18,
    2010. Also on that date the Constitution Party
    of California was at a registration of 163 with
    Don “Everything is a Fake” Grundmann as it
    claimed Chairman.

    Now the Constitution Party in Alaska is up to
    three. Wow! That is the same number of people that Don Grundmann had at his bogus
    convention that elected him with the pretention that he was chairman.

    It looks like the National Consitution Party
    are into threesomes in its west coast states.

    Odom, I see you are into grouping of three.

    Sincerely, Mark Seidenberg, Vice Chairman
    American Independent Party

    = Yet unlike you, they already have a party member in office. And they just started recently, so of course they’re going to be small.

    AIP has nobody in office at all?

  5. Richard Winger

    Members of the American Independent Party have been elected to non-partisan office in California. The biggest office an AIP registrant ever held was Supervisor of El Dorado County.

    All county and city elections in California have been non-partisan ever since the 1910’s decade. The State Constitution requires non-partisan elections for county and city office.

  6. paulie Post author

    Out of 400,000+ registered voters, I would be very surprised if none hold any kind of elected or appointed office now.

  7. Mark Seidenberg

    Paulie

    Surprise, I can think of two in addition two elected office within the party itself.

    One of the 2008 presidental primary candidates
    that lost to Don Grundmann holds elective office
    on his local water district board.

    Another delegate to the 2010 convention has been holding elective office on a school district
    board.

    ” That is the same number of people that Don Grundmann had at his bogus convention that elected him with the pretention that he was chairman.”

    Response – Mark the Liar/Mole/Traitor/Criminal/Coward – The REAL AIP convention in Ontario at an excellent 1st class hotel, and at which I was indeed elected Chairman, had over 50 attendees; not counting a crowd of 100+ at our evening banquet to hear our excellent speakers. Your fake criminal organization convention in Sacramento at your outhouse rathole had 17 at the most. Of course you will probably pad your attendance numbers by adding the police which you called to deny the right to vote to myself, Ernie Vance, Jerry Leidecker, and David Christenson; all legitimate members of the Central Committee who were denied the right to vote by the corruption of the Robinson Crime Syndicate inclusive of yourself as their ” bagman ” and direct connection to the anti-American and anti-humanity domestic espionage organizations of the ADL and the SPLC. Chairman Myers of the Alaska Constitution Party has more legitimacy than you will ever have. He did not file fake documents to establish his position as you have and did. He is not part of a criminal conspiracy as you are. He is an honest American patriot; the complete opposite of you.

    Alaska Constitution Party,

    That is a valid question you ask. I think some Californians truly, with all their hearts believe that the whole world revolves around them and their navels.

    In fact, I think it may even go a little deeper than that.

    Not only do they believe it; they simply assume it to be true without any conception that it may be otherwise.

    To them, a Californiacentric view of the universe is as water is to a fish.

    that lost to Don Grundmann holds elective office
    on his local water district board.

    = What are their names and are they still in the AIP, most specifically, your faction.

  11. Cody Quirk

    From small acorns mighty oaks grow. We will grow, and it will be with legitimate members. And why does anything about Alaska seem to invite the CA feud?

    = Because Mr. Seidenberg just can’t help himself in instigating fights and alienating others.

    ” And why does anything about Alaska seem to invite the CA feud?”

    Response : Mr. Myers – The attack upon the AIP in California is indeed relevant to your party in the sense that the national Constitution Party is under attack by the forces which Mark Seidenberg works for; forces which will not leave you unaffected in your work. Although Mark sneers in contempt at the current size of your party you can be assured that his masters/controllers and well known domestic espionage agents of the Anti-Defamation League, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and higher controllers will leave no stone unturned in their effort to destroy the patriot/conservative movement in our nation; inclusive, if needed, of your effort. Hence do not consider your physical location of Alaska to be an insulation which will protect you from being attacked by agents of these organizations as you progress. The infiltration of your organization by moles dedicated to its destruction is only a matter of time as your success gains momentum. The work of the enemies of our nation is to destroy the national patriot/conservative movement via attacks both large ( against the CP nationally ) and small ( against its state affiliates, even Alaska no matter how small it may be at the moment ). They will prefer to either strangle you in the cradle before you gain too much strength or simply steer your organization into uselessness and irrelevancy You should not underestimate them.

  14. Mashed Potato with a Twist

    Mr. Grudnmann,

    That sounds a bit conspiratorial minded if not downright paranoid.

  15. Cody Quirk

    Ok Mark, since you refuse to give an answer, then its obvious that you are lying and I am right in my assessment about the AIP.

  16. paulie Post author

    That’s not obvious. Again, I would be very surprised if none of the 400,000+ registered AIP right now are in any of the elected or appointed offices in California. There are tens thousands of such offices, and many are uncontested – anyone who applies can have them.

    I think the real answer is that the AIP is not keeping track of which of their members are in elected and appointed offices, because Mr. Seidenberg is much more interested in other things, such as his arguments with Mr. Grundmann and Ms. Nightingale, the laws of the former Sultanate of Zanzibar, etc, to be bothered with things like keeping track of party members in office or sending out press releases on the current situation in the Arab world, the State of the Union, the State of the State, etc.

  17. Cody Quirk

    I have observed from Mr. Seidenberg’s behavior that he doesn’t answer or eludes an answer whenever something he claims is on shaky ground or easily refuted.
    This behavior is unbecoming of someone that’s the Vice-Chair of a political party.

    Hypothetically speaking, if the CP ever broke up and the IAP were to look for another party to affiliate with, we could NEVER work with his side of the AIP as long as people with questionable character and integrity, like him, are in leadership positions.

  18. FYI! [More Don Lake]

    Cody Quirk // Feb 10, 2011:
    I have observed from Cody Quirk’s behavior that he doesn’t answer or eludes an answer whenever something he claims is on shaky ground or easily refuted, including using poor grammar when criticizing others’ poor grammar, including incorrect spelling (‘Maroon’) when criticizing others’ CORRECT spelling .

    He types snide, often incorrect, often obscene remarks when lots of folks would consider it entirely unnecessary.

    This behavior is unbecoming of someone that’s a Mormon [specifically], a Christain [generally], an officer of a ‘moralistic’ political party [specifically], and the more conservative arena of modern American politics.

  19. Cody Quirk

    Don Lake, do you know the names of the AIP elected office holders? Or are you talking with toilet-paper stuffed in your mouth.

    Your defense of Seidenberg actually makes him look even worse to us, why do you keep putting your foot in your mouth and misspelling words constantly?

  20. Mark Seidenberg

    Cody Quiirk

    It is David Larson. He was one of the four running for President on the AIP ticket in 2008.
    He was elected to the Bighorn Water Board.

    More Alaska Election Irregularities and a letter to Alaska Election Officials:

    Dear Director Fenumiai,

    While casting my absentee ballot recently in Soldotna, at the Kenai Peninsula Borough Clerk’s office, I could not

    help but notice that both the ballots and the voter registration forms being used were outdated, and did not list

    the Alaska Constitution Party. This is, of course, an extremely serious breach of law, as the Alaska

    Constitution Party has now been an officially recognized Political Group for nearly a year now. I had previously

    been assured by your office that you would instruct all election officials across Alaska to destroy the old forms

    and to begin using the new forms. Apparently this is not the case, or your directives have simply not been

    followed. This has now put the Alaska Constitution Party at a serious disadvantage that is now impossible to

    quantify. How many voter registrants have we lost due to this? How many elections offices across Alaska

    continue to use the old forms? As the Alaska Constitution Party has complied with all legal requirements, of

    both the U.S. Department of Justice and the State of Alaska, we expect ALL Alaska election officials to do the

    same. Our party status is directly contingent upon voter registration numbers. This newly discovered

    irregularity is very sad and represents a grievous damage to our efforts. We expect you to implement a

    corrective action plan to remedy this situation immediately! We also expect you to keep in communication with us

    regarding your actions as they are undertaken in a timely manner. I look forward to your prompt response. You

    may contact me via the following methods.

    FROM:Lieutenant Governor Mead Treadwell (GOV sponsored) TO:johricmye@yahoo.com Message flagged Friday, October 14, 2011 5:30 PMMessage body Dear Mr. Myers,

    Thank you for your message to Gail Fenumiai. Director Fenumiai and Lt. Governor Treadwell read your email and discussed the issues your raise, and wanted to share with you the following to address your concerns:

    When the Division of Elections was made aware of the concerns you raise in your email below, the Region I office got in touch with the Kenai Peninsula Borough Clerk and learned she is aware of the problem. The clerk said that her predecessor had ordered many cases of the absentee in-person ballot envelopes, which contained an older list of party affiliations and a blank line for ‘Other’, and these supplies were discovered and distributed to all the polling places. These were the only envelopes available to the Borough for the October election and they were not able to replace them. However, when the clerk learned about this issue, she did what she could to make sure the old voter registration forms were replaced.

    Since your email, the Region I office has emailed all of the city clerks in that region to again remind them about using the most current voter registration form.

    The Division of Elections notifies clerks when there are changes to forms that boroughs/municipalities use, and it is incumbent upon the clerks to correct their forms. The Division is in touch again with all borough/municipal clerks to ensure they are using the most updated versions of the voter registration form and absentee in-person and questioned envelopes. The Division currently uses a version of these envelopes that does not list any party affiliations, but instead provides a line for voters to write their affiliation in. (The list and check boxes were removed to help preclude issues like this and to save money from numerous reprints, as there are continual changes being made to officially recognized groups and parties.)

    The current voter registration form is available on the Division of Elections website and is also being used by the Division of Motor Vehicles.

    The Division will bring up this issue at the clerk’s conference in November.

    Please feel free to get in touch by phone or email if you have any questions, or if I can be of any further assistance.

    Best regards,

    Colleen

    The CA AIP and the Alaska CP always get debated because the CP in Alaska may end up just like the AIP in CA. Why do a lot of third parties end up that way.
