    This is Scott Beckstead's reply: No, everyone needs to register separately, so we have all their legislative district info. If someone is afraid or nervous to go by themselves, I guess they tag along to another appointment, but you know offices don’t want groups of non-constituents in there. And there isn’t a way for that friend to indicate they are bringing a guest. It will tell them they can’t register more than one person. I think it gives them an error or kicks it back at them. So I would recommend they all register, separately, and then if they represent a group, then you’ll need to figure out the best way to do it, like who are they representing? A shelter? Maybe they all go to the district office of that shelter and say “as a community service group, yada yada..”? Or something like a group of teachers all from the same school go to that school’s district office. But, we really just want them to go visit their elected officials.

    Is it definite we should register individually? It looks like maybe groups can register.
