Transcript ' II for at least three months and who are by the same action exempt from the payment of dues to the state and local organization. The number of exempt stamps shall not exceed 10 per cent of the total number of stamps obtained by the respective state organizations. The acceptance of exempt stamps by any member shall in no way disqualify such member from any rights and privileges of party membership. (c) The National Office shall also issue a double perforated stamp to the state secretaries at the rate of ten cents per stamp, one-half of such stamp to be affixed to membership card of husband and other half to that of wife. Husbands and wives desiring to use such stamp shall make application to the financial secretary of their local and such application shall be passed upon by such organization. Sec. 8. All state organizations shall provide in their constitutions for the initiative, referendum and imperative mandate. Sec. 9. No person shall be nominated or indorsed by any subdivision of the party for candidate for Eublic office unless he is a member of the party and as^beenYsuch|for at least two years, except with the consent of the state organization. But this provision shall not apply to organizations which have been in existence for less than two years. Sec. 10. When a controversy exists in a state organization, the Executive Secretary shall continue to sell due stamps to the Secretary recognized by him before such controversy is officially brought before him, until a state referendum has decided otherwise. He shall take no action except on petition of ten per cent of the locals (but not less than three locals), which must be located in different localities, appearing on the last official list filed with him by the State Secretary at east three months prior to controversy, and then only if there is doubt as to who is State Secretary. In such case he shall hold a referendum of those locals reported on the last official list to determine who is State Secretary. The individual signed ballots in such referendum shall be sent to the Executive Secretary. 11
