OK guys, here's the plan.

First off let me just share that my own, personal, insight tells me that the situation with Bernie Sanders will resolve itself. I don't know how, exactly, but I have felt and continue to feel that somehow Bernie Sanders will be restored to his rightful place as the Democratic Nominee and will easily triumph over Trump. Now-that said, we must still be practical and work toward the outcome we seek. To that end, a number of people have been engaged in researching Election laws and procedures in each of the 50 states.

Here's what we've learned:

  1. IN ORDER TO WIN THE OFFICE OF POTUS, A CANDIDATE MUST SECURE 270 ELECTORAL [COLLEGE] VOTES.
  2. IF NO CANDIDATE WINS 270 ELECTORAL [COLLEGE] VOTES, THEN THE POTUS IS SELECTED BY A VOTE IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OUT OF THE TOP 3 CANDIDATES WITH THE MOST ELECTORAL [COLLEGE] VOTES.
  3. CURRENTLY, 43 STATES ALLOW WRITE-IN BALLOTS FOR POTUS, ALTHOUGH MANY REQUIRE SOME SORT OF PRIOR REGISTRATION.

STATES WHICH ALLOW WRITE-INS WITHOUT PREREQUISITES:

  • AL -> ALABAMA
  • IA -> IOWA
  • NH -> NEW HAMPSHIRE
  • NJ -> NEW JERSEY
  • OR -> OREGON
  • PA -> PENNSYLVANIA
  • RI -> RHODE ISLAND
  • WA -> WASHINGTON
  • WY -> WYOMING
  • VT -> VERMONT *

IN THE AFOREMENTIONED STATES, WRITE-IN "BERNARD SANDERS" FOR PRESIDENT. FOR THE SAKE OF UNIFORMITY, WRITE-IN "TULSI GABBARD" FOR VICE PRESIDENT

* VERMONT IS THE FIRST STATE ON WHICH WE WILL FOCUS BECAUSE IT IS BERNIE'S HOME STATE IN WHICH 80% OF THE POPULATION VOTED FOR HIM IN THE PRIMARIES.

SO-IN A NUTSHELL, THE PLAN IS THREE FOLD:

  1. Deny Trump and Hillary the 270 Electoral [College] votes required to win
  2. Force the House of Representatives to choose from the top 3 (which will include senator Sanders) *
  3. Support reform to the 2-party system by getting Dr. Stein the 5% needed for Federal funding next election

* the likelihood is high that given a choice between Clinton, Trump, and Sanders the House will choose Sanders, and we can certainly pressure them to do so as well!

OK. So, if you live in any of those 10 states just mentioned, you know what to do:
Just WRITE IN Bernard Sanders and Tulsi Gabbard and that's it!

If you live in CALIFORNIA, this next part is for you...

We have a very unique opportunity to make history here. It is not well known that in order to get a candidate on the ballot as a write-in, all that must happen is for 55 people to sign up to be Presidential Electors before the deadline on October 25,2016. We currently have 13 verified Electors and more are in the process of filing the necessary paperwork.
