Granite State Progress is very cautious when compiling lists of Free State Project members. There must be a documented link between the individual and the Free State Project, and it must signal significant involvement or clearly state that the individual is a member of the Free State Project. Due to the cautious nature of our work, it is possible that there are more Free Staters running for office than listed here. Any tips, edits, or modifications are encouraged to be sent to freestateprojectwatch@granitestateprogress.org. The best tips include links or documentation demonstrating that a candidate is, indeed, a member of the Free State Project.
