Success!! Ron Paul supporters filled all the needed positions in the state. Deadline has passed and we accomplished our goal. No Ron Paul supporters will be on the ballot though b/c no seats are contested.

I think it means theyve already got a monopoly on all the delegate positions.

If more than 1 person signs up as a delegate for a seat for Ron Paul, you have to select which delegate should go to the convention.

There were something like 40 seats and we placed 1 person in each seat. (it is a good use of resources since it costs $150 to apply to be a delegate.)

How are Alabama's rules set up? How many of those are unbound delegates? Did you also fill the alternate in case someone can't make it?

Alabama is set up as:

-21 Congressional District Delegates - 3 per district - Winner take all if over 50% - Winner take two if less than 50% (ALL are Bound to Ron Paul as first choice)

-24 At large Delegates - Statewide - 20% need to win any delegates - 51% winner takes all - If no winner take all then its proportional (All are bound to Ron Paul as first choice)

-3 Super Delegates - Statewide - Unbound - AL GOP Chairman, National Committeeman and National Committee Woman




And we do have some alternates.


Let me correct myself from above. I believe we may have one or two spots contested now. I am not sure though. But regardless ALL spots are filled.

If your spot is not contested then your name is not on the ballot, but if it is contested then your name is listed on the ballot. My name will not be listed on the ballot.

Finally I would like to thank Steve Gordon for single handily putting all the delegates together and getting them registered.

If anyone of you know him then give him a thank you shout!

Quick clarification question: Has Ron Paul won Alabama?

no no absolutely not. Nobody has won anywhere.

He is in the position to win. Hunter, Tancredo, and Keyes are technically unable to win.

Dr. Paul will earn delegates if he gets certain vote totals. You have to get 20% statewide to earn any delegates I think.

Great. Now I work on the 20% part.

You must get 20% statewide to get any "At large delegates" and you must get 20% within a congressional district to get any delegates from that congressional district (Min. 1, Max. 3).

I'm one of two people contesting I believe. Tried to mail my application from a 24/7 Kinko's the night before Nov. 5th but surprisingly Kinko's actually shut down their computer system to run maintanence(ever hear of parallel systems guys? :p ). Finally mailed it the next day and the coordinator got it(he was turning them in all at once) but said they got enough spots and was it okay to run me as an alternate. I said yes and now I'm apparently going to be on the ballot. Of course, I'm contesting a Doctor, so I think I will lose :D. It's all good though, as long as one of us goes :). Since Alabama is proportional though, it could be fairly tough to actually go.
