LP Monday Message: Vote Libertarian tomorrow!

November 1, 2010

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Tomorrow is Election Day. If you haven’t already voted, please go tomorrow and vote for every Libertarian on your ballot. (See here for a complete list of over 800 candidates.)

Also, please contact your friends and family and encourage them to vote Libertarian as well. Win or lose, every vote for a Libertarian sends a clear message for liberty.

According to Richard Winger of Ballot Access News, 82% of voters live where they can choose Libertarians.

Unfortunately, in Washington D.C., where I’ll vote, there are no Libertarians on the ballot. I’ve read about the candidates from other parties who are on the ballot. None have libertarian political views — that’s why it is so important to have Libertarians on the ballot. Perhaps I’ll write in my own name for every race in D.C., or I may just leave the ballot blank.

When contacting your friends, feel free to point out how similar the policies of Republicans and Democrats have been.

You could also tell them that, according to Project Vote Smart, Libertarians show more political courage than Republicans or Democrats.

If they are Democrats, you might point them to this press release about anti-war voters.

If they are Republicans, you might point them to this one about how Republicans owe an apology to America.

I am especially thankful to all of our candidates, their families, volunteers, and donors who have given their time, effort, and money this campaign season. Please don’t let up until the polls close Tuesday evening.

I expect to be posting election results and analysis throughout the week. Due to the large number of candidates, I’m unable to predict exactly what we’ll be publishing when. However, please check LP.org frequently.

Also, there is always lots of discussion on our Facebook page.

Thanks again to all who have contributed this election season, and best wishes on Election Day.

Vote Libertarian tomorrow!
