Libertarians of Arizona were disappointed with the results of the 2018 Primary, but there is still hope for a Libertarian victory this year. Nicholas Sarwark, chairman of the Libertarian National Committee, is still in the race for Mayor of Phoenix. Sarwark qualified for the ballot on August 17th and is working to get the word out about his fiscal, and social plans to help the City of Phoenix balance its budget, fund its liabilities, and improve and maintain city infrastructure. So for those who are still looking for a horse to bet on, Sarwark is a fine choice. An endorsement from Barry Goldwater Jr. doesn’t hurt, either.
You can donate or find out more about Sarwark’s campaign here.
As for the rest of the districts without a Libertarian representative on the ballot, fear not. The future is brighter than what you’re seeing now, and candidates are already working on their 2019 and 2020 campaigns. The new signature requirement has been a problem, so candidates and volunteers are stepping up to plan and take action much earlier. This allows candidates to get their signature requirements out of the way so they can focus on messaging, and speaking to voters about issues that matter, instead of worrying about ballot status. Expect to see more candidates on the ballot in the coming years, and don’t forget to keep your voter registration up to date! In most cases you must be registered within the district that a candidate is running, and registered with the Libertarian Party or an independent in order for your signature to count for the candidate’s petitions.
