Each election cycle, the Libertarian Party works hard to get our candidates on as many ballots across the country as we can.
The results on Election Day will determine how much time, money, and effort will be needed to achieve ballot access in 50 states plus D.C. for our 2020 presidential nominee, just as we did in 2016.
Here are eight important races for Libertarian Party ballot access:
Travis is running for governor of Ohio in a four-way race. The national Libertarian Party and the Libertarian Party of Ohio have invested more than $200,000 in petitioning efforts to run candidates in Ohio for 2018. If Travis gets 3 percent of the vote or more, Libertarians would automatically achieve 2020 ballot access Ohio. Travis is currently polling at 4.1 percent.
Jilletta is running for governor of New Hampshire, reaching out to people who have been marginalized by the current adminstration. She is working with dozens of non-profit groups to help address the opioid epidemic in New Hampshire. Ballot access for 2020 will automatically be secured for New Hampshire if Jilletta recieves 4 percent of the vote.
Larry Sharpe is running for governor of New York. Larry has campaigned in every county in the state and has received considerable media attention, including interviews on The Rubin Report, The Joe Rogan Experience, and FOX’s Kennedy. If Larry receives 50,000 votes, that would secure ballot access for New York Libertarians for the next four years. This would be a historic achievement for the Libertarian Party in New York.
Jake Porter is running for governor of Iowa. Jake is focusing on educating voters about critical issues like criminal justice reform. If he achieves 2 percent of the vote, the Libertarian Party will have automatic ballot access in Iowa in 2020. Jake recently polled at 7 percent.
