We still don't have the regular monthly numbers coming from Frankfort, and won't have those until after the redistricting process is completed -- which means it will probably be in May. However, we were able to get a new list of Registered Libertarians, and our numbers are beating our estimated trend.
Since we're missing data, we can't do a very good comparison, but we do know that our numbers have increased a whopping 29.38% from March 2013 to March 2014!
By comparison, from March 2013 through February 2014, Democratic Party registration increased only 0.03% and Republican Party registration increased only 2.26%. It's not quite an apples-to-apples comparison, but it's the only data we have for now.
This growth is in spite of the fact that still don't know how to register to vote as a Libertarian, since the voter registration card doesn't explicitly list us. If you're not sure how to register Libertarian, you can find that here.
NOTE: Kentucky law did not provide for tracking voters who sought to be registered as Libertarian, until January 1, 2006. The party first bought a copy of the statewide list in September of 2006 (the first data point), and has purchased copies in 2010 and 2012. LPKY continues to monitor and report our progress as we grow our numbers statewide.
