Stamford has a Democratic Registrar and a Republican Registrar to assure voting rights for members of the two major parties. But Democrats make up 42% of Stamford voters, Republicans make up 23%, while unaffiliated and minor party voters make up 34%.*  We need a third Registrar to represent this fastest growing group of voters.

  • Registering voters since 1986 (Project VOTE, Chester, Penna.)
  • Taught citizenship classes to aspiring U.S. citizens in Bridgeport and New Haven
  • Member of CT Green Party since 1996, Secretary of Fairfield County chapter since 2002
  • Experience with member databases and web design


  • Make sure that every Stamford citizen is allowed to vote—no mysterious cleaning of the voter lists as in Florida in 2000 or Ohio in 2004
  • Make voter registration and change-of-address forms available in all town offices, libraries, etc.  Organize voter registration drives in the community.
  • Encourage resident immigrants to apply for U.S. citizenship and take part in the democratic process.
  • Fully implement the Voting Rights Restoration Act of 2001.  Convicted felons who have served their time should be reintegrated into society, including the body politic.


  • Reliable manual audits of the new electronic voting machines.
  • Public financing of municipal elections, like New Haven's pilot Democracy Fund—government should not be up for sale to the biggest spender.
  • Instant Runoff Voting (IRV)—no candidate should be elected without 50% of the vote.  We need more people to run for office, without fear of "spoiling" another candidate.
  • Voter registration forms at all U.S. Post Offices.  Why does Uncle Sam provide forms for income tax and draft registration, but not voter registration?
  • Election Day Registration for last-minute voters who recently moved or were mistakenly dropped from the lists. The Legislature has already passed this bill (with strict ID requirements to safeguard against fraud), but it was either vetoed or tabled. Now it's time to get this done.
  • Let 17-year-olds vote in primaries Vote YES on Question 2: "Shall the Constitution of the State be amended to permit any person who will have attained the age of eighteen years on or before the day of a regular election to vote in the primary for such regular election?"
