I'm not sure what you mean by "bona fide" here.  Please explain.

If you're just encouraging them to take votes from online community
groups, in addition to the other groups currently on the table, it
seems reasonable to me.

The general point I wanted to make was in response to your claims of
the Internet's "distance insensitivity."  I think if you seek out
registration within the .us domain, you can establish the kind of
geography-based online community you want.  After that, it is just a
matter of figuring out what types of equipment you need to build (or
buy) to support your community's needs.
