First of all, thank you to everyone that voted Libertarian this election! Libertarian election results as good as these don’t come without a lot of hard work from volunteers, and a lot of commitment from voters. We’ve made several gains in a multitude of states thanks to your help. Most importantly though, thank you to all the Libertarian candidates that sacrificed their time and resources to further the cause of liberty.
Libertarian candidates may not have won very many elections this year, but we’ve had some high percentage victories. In some states, that means we’ll get the ballot access we deserve for the next election. Guaranteed ballot access is important because it’s time and money that we won’t have to waste next time. Libertarians will be able to spend more time and money campaigning, and less time getting arbitrary signature counts.
These high percentage Libertarian election results also send a clear message to both of the two parties. Voting Libertarian tells them they won’t receive our consent, and will have to work harder if they ever want our votes. If they don’t, we’re more than happy to keep voting Libertarian. These Libertarian election results show just how many Americans are fed up with the two party system and want a third major party.
