If you do not see a candidate listed under his/her state, please note that election laws and filing schedules vary significantly by state. Additionally, our candidate listing policy for each of our affiliate states varies. In some cases, all candidates seeking the LP nomination are listed, while in other cases only candidates who have been nominated or endorsed by the state or local LP affiliate are listed. If you feel a candidate should be listed who is not, please contact the Libertarian Party state affiliate for more information or to request that a candidate be listed.
Please also note that the Chair of each state Libertarian Party affiliate is the final arbiter of which candidates should be listed at this website.
