Membership in the LP

Hi Marcy,

My understanding of the LPC Bylaws is that *voting* membership
requires not being registered with another party. That is, you must
either not be registered, or be registered as "Decline to State", or
be registered Libertarian, to be a voting member.

(Being an *officer* requires actually being registered Libertarian --
"if eligible", which I presume means that someone under 18 years of
age, or not a citizen, could be an officer without being registered to
vote at all, but anyone who *can* be registered to vote, must be, in
order to be an officer.)

I don't think any of this is affected by any recent changes to the Bylaws.

Cheers,
Justin

Justin is entirely correct. One who does not qualify for regular
(voting) membership in the LPC may become an associate (non-voting)
member by paying dues even if registered to vote with another party.
