If you go to, you'll see that my own current tally now sits at over 600,000 either enrolled or at least with completed applications.

Today's big updates:

--the District of Columbia is up to over 1,800 "individuals and families" which could actually mean up to perhaps 3,000 actual people

--Illinois has received 20,000 completed applications for Medicaid expansion.

--Massachusetts, which is a special case since they've been running their exchange for years (thanks, Mitt!) has added another 5,691 since the ACA exchanges formally started.

--The beat rolls on in New York, which is now up to 150,000 people "registered and deemed eligible"

--A handful of people have signed up in Mississippi and Wyoming, believe it or not!

Thanks to the folks below the fold for providing some of these sources!

Anyway, to keep my tally going and up to date, I'm STILL looking for people to assist by taking on one or more states.
I have 7 states covered so far, but if you're interested in assisting, email me at cgaba (at) brainwrap (dot) com, thanks!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
