There are many local races going on in your area in the next year or two years. All too often local races are not contested or are non-partisan and that gives us special opportunities for advancing the Libertarian Party. If you are contemplating a 2018 run, now is the time to lay the foundation. Some states even require that candidates who run in 2018 file paperwork in 2017. So, don’t delay.
The more candidates we have on ballots, the more voters will realize that we are a growing party worthy of their consideration. The more candidates we have on ballots, the more the news media will realize we are party ready to overthrow the two-party duopoly that has dominated American politics for too long. The more candidates we have on ballots, the better we can advance liberty across America.
Will you help give liberty a voice by running for office as a Libertarian candidate?
Chair, Libertarian National Committee
Note: Why should Libertarians run for office? To give voters another choice. to receive free media coverage and to get our message out there. The national LP site has help available at lp.org/run-for-office and firstname.lastname@example.org. Of course, you can always start by contacting your local party officers via this website. We will be glad to hear from you.
