Anybody, regardless of political affinity or physical location, can sign up on the GPTX website to get email updates, to volunteer, or to donate. When you sign up, your name and any contact information you share go into the database. Being listed in the database does not make you a member; according to the GPTX Bylaws, you have to show up and participate in your local county party's meetings and activities, and attest that you are in general agreement with the Ten Key Values to be considered a member.
