2018 Libertarian Primary Election


The Libertarian Party faced an uphill battle to get their candidates on the ballot this year largely due to a recent piece of legislation passed by a Republican controlled legislature, and a Republican governor that substantially increased the number of signatures required for a Libertarian candidate to get on the ballot. That’s the bad news, but the good news is you can still cast your vote for one of the various candidates running for office during our primary election, and if they receive enough votes they WILL appear on the ballot on November. Every vote counts, and they really do count so long as you write-in one of the candidates listed here.¬†While the bar for having representation on the ballot has been raised, the Libertarian Party is committed to having libertarian principles represented at the ballot box. It is to that end that the LP has decided to re-think the way they run candidates, and are setting out to have a minimum number of state legislature, city, and county candidates gearing up for 2020. The foundations for the 2020 election are already being laid, and the LP hopes to come back stronger, and more energized for the next round of elections. In the meantime, preparations are being made for victory at the primaries, and each campaign is prepared to go forward to the general elections in November. Every vote counts, so turn in those early ballots, or get to the polls on August 28th to cast your vote!
