It’s possible the Democrats will take the majority. This will matter as far as what the chances of passing ballot access reform through the legislature and which arguments may work.

From Darryl W. Perry:

New Hamshire held municipal elections in the most of the 13 Cities across
the state; town elections are in the Spring. While municipal elections are
officially non-partisan, 2 Libertarians ran for City offices.

Former state rep Joseph LaChance who joined the LP in January pulled in
38.49% for Manchester School Board, and Robert Call received 19.28% for
Mayor in Keene.

We also had several special elections for the NH General Court earlier in
the year. Brian Shields, Communications Director for the Libertarian House
Caucus, brought in 7.58% in a three-way race in the Strafford 13 election
on October 24. James Jarvis earned 2.27% of the vote in the Rockingham 4
election on September 26. Former LP Gubernatorial nominee John J. Babiarz
pulled in 2.33% in the Grafton 9 special election in September, and Jason
Dubrow received 1.26% of the vote in the July 25 special election for

Chuck Moulton
November 8, 2017 at 17:37

I was probably elected Judge of Elections (lead guy who administers primary and general elections in PA for a given precinct) by writing myself in. There was no one else running and the precinct results only show 1 write-in vote, which must be mine. However, the contents (rather than number) of write-in votes are usually not posted for a few days or weeks, so I won’t know for sure until they are fully tabulated.

If I win, I will only respond to “Judge Moulton” from then on.

Pro tip: Always write yourself in for empty offices.

http://www.gp.org/mirna_martinez_re_elected

Mirna Martinez becomes the first New London Green ever elected in New London on the Green line only. Not an easy task!

http://www.gp.org/initial_returns_from_minneapolis

Initial returns from Minneapolis show that Cam Gordon has been overwhelmingly reelected. Samantha Pree-Stinson and Terry White ran strong, but unsuccessfull campaigns.

Running against 3 other candidates in a Ranked Choice system, White finished second as first choice, second as second choice and first as third choice.

Running against 3 other candidates in a Ranked Choice system, Pree-Stinson, finished fourth as first-choice, third as second choice and first as third choice.

Billy Menz is one of three candidates for Park and Recreation Commissioner District 1. He finished second for first choice, second for second choice and second for third choice.

Charles Exner, one of three candidates for Park and Recreation Commissioner District 3, finished third for first choice, second for second choice and first for third choice.

Latrisha Vetaw, one of nine candidates for Park and Recreation Commissioner at Large, finished a very close second for first choice, a very close first for second choice and finished fourth for third choice.

According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, “The city plans to tabulate second and third rounds of the ranked-choice voting system Wednesday”.

http://www.gp.org/st_paul_mayoral_race

St Paul also has a ranked choice voting system. With 20 of 96 precincts reporting, Elizabeth Dickinson is 4th out of 10 candidates, with 5.92% of the first choice votes.

http://www.gp.org/st_louis_returns

Unofficial results from the race for St Louis Alderman, Ward 2, show Elston McCowan finishing third with 8.6% of the vote.

http://www.gp.org/note_from_virginia_co_chair (excerpt)

Now that the returns are in, I would like to extend on everyone’s behalf our congratulations and our gratitude to our many fine candidates in this election.

Particular admiration is owing to Jeff Staples, who garnered nearly 16% of the vote in a safe Democratic district, and to Will King, whose outstanding campaign garnered over 5% of the vote in a tough, highly partisan district.

Montigue Magruder shook up Richmond politics, sending the Democrats in his district a wake-up call and taking over 3% of the vote. Marcus Sutphin and Gerald Anderson each faced a tougher challenge, campaigning in starkly conservative districts, and Marcus in particular in an almost exclusively rural district, where getting the message out and having it heard can be particular challenging and where few people have even heard of the Green Party. Both candidates pulled about 1% of the vote in their districts, staking out a beachhead for future Green campaigns in rural Virginia.

Jessica Clayton has been elected to the Brick Board of Education.

http://www.gp.org/waterford_greens_win_big Excerpt:

Green-endorsed candidates won seven out of nine races, winning four seats on the town’s Representative Town Meeting, a position on the Board of Education, a seat on the Board of Assessment Appeals, and an alternate position on the Zoning Board of Appeals. In total, the Green-endorsed candidates now holds a total of 10 appointed and elected seats in the town government. Furthermore, the election results in Waterford set a Green Party record for the largest contingency of Greens to serve on a legislative assembly in New England. The previous record in New England was 6.7% in New Haven, CT from 2001-2003, according to the Green Party of the United States website.

Voter turnout was higher this year than it was in 2013 by several percentage points, much of which the Greens believe can be attributed to their presence on the ballot and the fierce campaign they ran. Five of the seven candidates running on the Green line were the highest vote-getter in their race as well, further demonstrating a strong mandate for the elected Greens. Green candidates that were top vote-getters include Deb Roselli Kelly (Board of Ed), Mike Buscetto III (Board of Assessment Appeals), Darcy Van Ness (Zoning Board Alternate), Andrew Frascarelli (RTM D1), and Joshua Steele Kelly (RTM D3). Only Carl D’Amato (RTM D4) and Baird Welch-Collins (RTM D2) won in a lesser place. While the Greens did work with the Democrats on the ballot, Welch-Collins is the first candidate to be elected as a Green alone in a contested race in Waterford.

  1. Tony From Long Island

    The bit about Lewis County New York electing someone from the “Independence” party could be misleading because of New Nork’s ridiculous cross-endorsement system.

    Unless this guy got a majority of his votes on the Independence party line, he was likely elected as a Democrat.

    The article cited says: ” . . . .Mr. LaChausse, who received most of his votes on the top Democratic line, . . . ”

    I am actually surprised that the Watertown Daily would write an article like this. The headline is incredibly misleading.

    Last year, I accidentally voted for Gary Johnson on the independence line. So while I did vote for Governor Johnson and his vote was counted among his total votes, I would have rather voted for him under the Libertarian line.

    Post updated, mostly with Green Party results plus a few more LP. Please post anything we missed in the comments here, and if you are an IPR editor feel free to edit the post to add any additional election returns.

    Oops, meant to post this here:

    LP.org:

    On Nov. 7, the Libertarian Party won 12 races for public office, continuing an upward trend in the number of voters who support the party. Last year, the Libertarian Party set its all-time record in presidential elections when the ticket of Gov. Gary Johnson and Gov. Bill Weld won nearly 4.5 million votes from all 50 states. Under the leadership of Wes Benedict, executive director of the Libertarian National Committee, the LP is succeeding in maintaining that forward momentum in the 2017 off-year elections through a focus on building the party by winning local races.

    This year’s elections are not quite over. On Dec. 17, a special election will be held in Alabama to fill the seat vacated by Republican Jeff Sessions when he was appointed attorney general. In the GOP primary, the notorious Judge Roy Moore defeated the appointed incumbent. Moore has twice been removed from his former position on the Alabama Supreme Court, once for defying a federal court order to remove a monument of the Ten Commandments from the Alabama Judicial Building and a second time for directing probate court judges to enforce the state’s unconstitutional ban on same-sex marriage.

    The Democrats nominated Doug Jones, who is best known for, in 1998, successfully prosecuting two Ku Klux Klan members for their roles in the 1963 16th Street Baptist Church bombing. Although this is normally a safe GOP state, Moore and Jones are surprisingly close in the polling. The Democratic Party has even dispatched former Joe Biden, the former U.S. vice president, to campaign for Jones in Alabama.

    Enter Libertarian Party candidate Ron Bishop, who is running a solid campaign focused on libertarian principles and positioning himself as the sane choice between an extreme social conservative and a Democrat who is much too progressive for Alabamians to vote for under most circumstances. Bishop’s website, RonBishopForUSSenate.com, provides a clear overview of his positions on a wide range of political issues.

    Bishop faces the challenge of running as a write-in candidate because Alabama election law requires a 20 percent share of the statewide vote in order to retain ballot status. This creates an effective Democratic/Republican political duopoly.

    Bishop hopes to raise enough money to hire a skywriter to sky write “Who is Ron Bishop?” above the Auburn vs. Alabama football game a couple of weeks before the election. The campaign would provide attendees with the answer to that question by distributing 100,000 Ron Bishop campaign flyers throughout the stadium.

    The 12 Libertarian candidates who won office on Nov. 7 are:

    Jim Turney — Altamonte Springs City Commission (Florida)
    Greg Perry — Rome Township Auditor (Pennsylvania)
    Jennifer Moore — Auditor of Upper Providence in Montgomery County (Pennsylvania)
    James Fryman — Victory Township Supervisor in Venango County (Pennsylvania)
    Demo Agoris — Houston Borough Council in Washington County (Pennsylvania)
    Jeffy Geleff — Exeter Township School Director in Berks County (Pennsylvania)
    Jason Aucker — Spring Township Auditor in Snyder County (Pennsylvania)
    Zachary Elliott — Coconut Grove Village Council (Florida)
    Kevine Cline — Long Beach City Council (Washington)
    Christopher Nance — Carthage Town Commission (North Carolina)
    Eleanor Russell — Houston Borough Judge of Elections (Pennsylvania)
    Jake Towne — Lower Nazareth Auditor and Judge of Elections (Pennsylvania)
    Many more Libertarian candidates made respectable showings on Election Day. View more election results.

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Green Party racked up several victories in local races in the Nov. 7 general election.

    At least 127 Green candidates were on the ballot on Nov. 7, of whom at least 22 were elected. 13 ran for state or federal office, so the municipal victory count is 22 out 114 races. In all 2017 elections (not just Nov. 7), Greens won 44 out of 164 races.

    The Green Party of the United States congratulates the winners and thanks all Greens who ran for public office in 2017 and all those who worked on Green campaigns.

    In Waterford, Connecticut, Green candidates won five races for municipal seats: Darcy Van Ness (Zoning Board Alternate), Andrew Frascarelli (Representative Town Meeting District 1), Joshua Steele Kelly (RTM D3), Carl D’Amato (RTM D4), Baird Welch-Collins (RTM D2). Green-endorsed candidates now hold ten appointed and elected seats in the town government. The results in Waterford set a record for the largest contingency of Greens to serve on a legislative assembly in New England. More: http://www.gp.org/waterford_greens_win_big

    Massachusetts: Laurance Kimbrough was elected to the Cambridge School Committee.

    Minnesota: Cam Gordon was reelected to a fourth term on the Minneapolis City Council. LaTrisha Vetaw won her race for At-Large member of the Minneapolis Park Board, replacing Annie Young, the Green Party’s longest serving elected official in U.S.

    Colorado: Julie Bañuelos received 23% in a race for Denver School Board.

    New York: Jabari Brisport drew 29% in his race for New York City Council (District 35 in Brooklyn). In Glens Falls, Robin Barkenhagen received 35% for Councilor-At-Large.

    On November 7, 2017, the Green Party won ten partisan elections: eight in Connecticut and two in Pennsylvania. The Connecticut wins were in Windham, New London, Willimantic, and Waterford. The Pennsylvania wins were both in Burks County.

    In non-partisan races, Green Party members won four races in California, two in Colorado, one in Massachusetts, two in Minnesota, two in New Jersey

  6. Just Some Random Guy

    Although Ron Bishop is getting most of the attention (mostly due to the accusations against Roy Moore drawing more attention to the election), I wanted to point out that there’s another special election coming up, this time in Florida, where a Libertarian Party member is running:
    https://www.foxallforflorida.com

  7. Just Some Random Guy

    Huh, didn’t know anyone in the Constitution Party was even running for anything local. The candidates weren’t listed on their site under the list of candidates for local/state elections (though it seems they don’t update it much, as one of the candidates, Bill Bledsoe, isn’t actually running anymore)
