Americans Elect files as political party in Florida
I am indebted to Richard Winger of Ballot Access News for his discovery that Americans Elect has filed papers to gain recognition in the state of Florida as a political party. As of today, the 2012 presidential contending group does not yet appear on the official list of approved political parties in Florida; barring any petition irregularities we should expect Americans Elect to appear there soon. From that point forward the page should serve as a gateway to regularly-required reports on Americans Elect’s activity. Those reports can be telling — check out these reports for Americans Elect’s predecessor, Unity08, show that it fell out of legal compliance in the last election cycle.
