The LP can potentially save hundreds of thousands of dollars in 2014 and 2016 - and countless volunteer hours - if Gov. Gary Johnson, Libertarian for President, and down-ticket Libertarian candidates meet state requirements to achieve ballot access.
A lot is at stake this November for the Libertarian Party.
Vote totals will not only elect candidates and show areas of growth. The LP will automatically gain ballot access in 18 states by meeting thresholds set by each state's laws.

At a town hall meeting last January, Libertarian Patrick McKnight stood up to the incumbent congressman in New Jersey’s 7th district, Republican Leonard Lance, calling him out for his support of the sweeping, unaccountable government powers granted by the National Defense Authorization Act and the Patriot Act.
Libertarian Shaun Crowell, who raised over $30,000 for his U.S. Senate campaign in Tennessee, says he is getting looks from Democratic, Republican and Independent voters. The Democratic Party is not actively supporting their candidate, Mark Clayton, due to his socially conservative views. Other voters take interest in Crowell’s bold proposals to downsize the federal government.
Libertarian Calen Fretts is getting unusual publicity in his race for Florida's first congressional district. He’s been mentioned in the New York Times and Bloomberg Magazine and featured in the Northwest Florida Daily News.
He was included in a recent televised debate which has been replaying across the district. "We got a lot of good feedback from the debate, and I think the winds are shifting in the right direction," he said.
The Libertarian Party is America's third largest political party, founded in 1971. Our vision is for a world in which all individuals can freely exercise the natural right of sole dominion over their own lives, liberty and property by building a political party that elects Libertarians to public office, and moving public policy in a libertarian direction.
