Registered as a National Party (Section 527 political nonprofit). Not recognized yet, still working on it.

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.
The form for the petition can be downloaded here
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.
Several states are actually appearing to have their own state-level parties forming.
The following states have people who have contacted the Pirate Party of the United States, looking for state-level charters and to at least start the petition drive.
- New Jersey
- New York
