Vote!

Your vote for our candidates is appreciated!

Please note that you can enroll with the Board of Elections as a Libertarian. Check the box which says “Other” and write in Libertarian on the line next to it, and the Board of Elections will list you as such. When we achieve official party status in NY, you will be able to participate in the process of party nomination.

Candidates Wanted

Please give us a heads-up if you are interested in running for any sort of position as a Libertarian.

For statewide candidates, nomination is made at our State Convention. If the district in question is entirely outside of any county represented by a chapter, then it is the State Committee who needs to make the endorsement, otherwise it is any and all chapters contained within the district.

Join your local LPNY chapter to ask for help, or contact us to start one up if there isn’t one yet.
