Official status

Registered as a National Party (Section 527 political nonprofit). Not recognized yet, still working on it. Registration information is available on the US Internal Revenue Service's financial disclosure site, though there are issues with obtaining a new password so that we can report earnings from donations, etc., but at least it's listed. Chalk on up for transparency!

PPUS announces registration in Utah Submitted by Andrew Norton on Thu, 2007-08-09 00:39.Utah


The Pirate Party of the United States announces it is now accepting statements of support in the State of Utah. These statements are the first step in the registration of the Pirate Party as a political body in the State of Utah. (...) The Pirate Party of Utah, as the state party will be known, has until early February 2008 to return the 2000 signatures of registered voters it needs.

There were not enough signatures collected before the deadline. Plans are to start at the beginning of the next canvass in December 2008 for another try, and all petitions were destroyed by a paper shredding service so that personal information is maintained as private.
