Election 2010 - First Call for Candidates

From Ted Brown:

Dear Fellow Libertarians,

It is that time again.  Campaign 2010 is coming up, and we need Libertarians to run for a variety of partisan offices in California.  The first day to take out papers to run is about January 1, a little over 3 months away.

The offices up for election are:

State of California:
Governor, Lt. Governor, Secretary of State, Attorney General, Controller, Treasurer, Insurance Commissioner
Board of Equalization (all 4 seats)
State Senate (20 even numbered seats)
State Assembly (all 80 seats)

U. S. Senate (Boxer seat)
U. S. House of Representatives (all 53 seats)

In order to run, you need to be registered to vote as a Libertarian and not have been registered in any other party since March 2009.  If you are registered Decline to State or not registered to vote, you can register Libertarian by December 2009 and still be eligible.

For the district offices, State Senate and Assembly candidates must be residents of the district.  U. S. House candidates do not have to be residents of the district.  To run for the U. S. Senate, you must have been born on or before January 3, 1981.  To run for the U. S. House, you must have been born on or before January 3, 1986.  You only need to be 18 to run for any state position.

Please let me know if you are interested in running for any office, or if you know of anyone who should be interested in running.  You are welcome to pass this message along to other known Libertarian mailing lists.

For liberty.
Ted Brown
Candidate Recruitment Chair
Libertarian Party of California
