Please help us with ballot access

We recently signed an agreement with the Libertarian Party of Arkansas to pay $25,000 for ballot access petition signatures.

Please make a donation to help to pay for this important ballot access effort.

The LP Arkansas is one of our most improved state affiliates over the past four years, thanks largely to the leadership of Rodger and Jessica Paxton.

Arkansas elected three Libertarians to office in 2014. We need to make sure Libertarians are on the Arkansas ballot in 2016.
