Party registration[edit]

Is there any source that he is a registered libertarian? Metallurgist (talk) 01:42, 20 December 2016 (UTC)

Second or third faithless Libertarian elector vote?[edit]

I was just looking at this pending edit by 73.149.152.16. I'm trying to work out whether it is accurate or not. The edit changed the number of faithless electors who have voted for a Libertarian candidate from three to two. John Hospers was the first Libertarian candidate for President, so that'd be the first vote accounted for. According to this source as well as United States presidential election, 1972, the elector in question also voted for Tonie Nathan (referred to as Theodora in the WSJ source). I'm assuming that including the VP vote as part of the count of Libertarian faithless electors is a mistake–it is comparing apples and oranges. There's no mention of anyone other than Hospers, the VP pick of Nathan, and Paul in the WSJ article or in Libertarian Party (United States), so I intend to accept the pending change momentarily. —Tom Morris (talk) 14:16, 21 December 2016 (UTC)
