I’ve been getting emails from the state party off and on for the past year or so asking my preference for President. I can’t recall if I’d ever responded to one of these emails, and I assume most folks who have given their email address to the party gets these.

The email tonight from state chair Dwight Pelz (they had been coming from the executive director) was different. It asked you to express your preference at the state party website and to share the email with your friends.

Problem is that you have to fill out your street address and email address before you can submit your preference. I understand that it would be hard for the party to do anything at all with my preference of candidate or the issues I care about without giving the candidates a way to contact me, but it just seems shady.
