The bad news is their candidates will not win the GOP nomination.

The good news for fiscal conservatives is that the Libertarian presidential nominee—a tax-and-spending-cutter’s dream—is expected to be on the ballot in all fifty states, plus D.C., this November.

Libertarian Party will be on November ballot in Oklahoma

Today the Oklahoma State Election Board announced that the Libertarian Party’s (OKLP) petition submitted on February 22 is valid, allowing candidates to appear on the state’s November ballot as Libertarians. OKLP has not been recognized as an official political organization in the state since 2000.

To become a recognized political party, Libertarians had to complete a massive signature drive. Although Oklahoma lawmakers passed a bill in 2015 to reduce the signature requirement to 24,745, it’s still among the states with the highest ballot-access qualification hurdles.

For quite some time, Pew Research Center polls have consistently shown that more Americans identify as "independent" than as Republicans or Democrats.

Now, many Republican primary voters are considering voting for non-Republican candidates in the general election.
