2022 Year In Review

2022 was a strong year for the Libertarian Party with several candidates making their mark in the political arena from ballot access to the debate stage. The party also saw a massive increase in media exposure and significant social media growth. 2022 ushered in a wave of new members and donors supporting a fresh direction for the organization—and we’re just getting started.

With your help, 2023 is going to be even better.​
