Re-Register Month Project
September 1, 2017 - September 30, 2017
The #ReRegister Month project for 2017 starts on September 1. The purpose of the project is to get more people registered as Libertarians in states with Partisan voter registration. It is intended to make use of social media to help to highlight and enhance the switch people are making to the Libertarian Party.
According to Ballot Access News, Libertarian voter registration has doubled on a percentage basis in the 32 states that have it in just 9 years. The LNC Affiliate Support Committee officially recommended the adoption of a stretch goal of 1 million registered Libertarians by our Presidential Convention in 2020. Continued promotion of making the switch to the big L and #ReRegister to Libertarian can help us achieve this goal. To help promote this we arranged for up to 20 affiliates to Receive #ReRegister kits for the month. Most of you should be starting to receive these goodies in the next day or so if you have not gotten them already.
One important aspect of the project is make use of the hashtag #ReRegister. When posting on social media about it, use it every chance you get. We would love to get some videos and pictures up of people #Reregister -ing all over the country. If you post these to your personal, local, or state social media pages and accounts please make sure to use that hashtag.
I did a lot of videos of myself with people that were making the switch here in La last year and used the #ReRegister hashtag. One of my favorites was one of an off duty New Orleans Police Department Lieutenant during midsummer Mardi Gras with a mannequin’s lower body on his head as a helmet. These videos and other instances can be found by clicking the hashtag and searching through them. Some of them were a lot of fun. While this isn’t a Presidential election year, if enough people were using the hashtag it would start to trend on social media and create a viral effect. So, with that in mind I encourage everyone to get in the habit of using it.
Also, we will be posting #ReRegister memes from the national Party page, as well as videos from people like Larry Sharpe to help encourage others to #ReRegister. Please share these on social media and use the hashtag #ReRegister when you post the share (Remember TREND). Don’t just use Facebook. Use Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat as well!
Let’s all work hard together to make this #ReRegister month a success to build on for the coming years!
