Libertarian Party likely to set record for alternative party votes in midterm elections

"This year, it seems extremely likely that the Libertarian nominees for the office at the top of the ballot will poll over 2,000,000 votes", said Richard Winger, editor and publisher of Ballot Access News.

"This is partly because the Libertarians have more candidates for the top-of-the-ticket office this year than ever before, but mostly because so many of the party’s nominees are receiving substantial support."

Help us fight to keep LP candidates on the ballot

Dear fellow Libertarian,

Libertarian poll numbers across the country continue to raise the hackles of the old parties — and they're running scared.

Now they're fighting dirty.

As your chair, I'm committed that when the Libertarian Party puts a candidate on the ballot, we'll follow through to keep them on the ballot. And if our opponents cheat, we're going to fight back — and fight back hard.

In New York, we're mounting a legal defense to keep Libertarian Gigi Bowman on the ballot.
