Libertarian Voter Registration up Hundreds of Percent in Nebraska

Here in Indiana (home base for the LTC), a voter cannot register by party. If you SAY you are a member of a party, you are one. The closest one comes is if you vote in a closed-party primary for the R’s or D’s (L’s excluded). But there are some fantastic numbers for new registered L’s out of the LP of Nebraska that are shades of what is happening in other states. Thanks to Nebraska Chair David Hunt for providing these numbers. Registered Voters by Party, Statewide (Total Population – 1,842,641): Party October 2008 August 2012 % of Change Republican  558,465 549,920 –  1.53% Democrat 392,943 367,963 –  6.36% Nebraska 8,625 0 –  100.00% Green 1,041 0 –  1.53% Nonpartisan   195,507 221,952 + 13.53% Libertarian   453 2,503 + 452.54% Registered Voters by Party, Douglas County (Omaha) (Total Population – 408,958): Party October 2008 August 2012 % of Change Republican  123,505 123,076 –  0.35% Democrat 127,158 123,813 –  2.63% Nebraska 3,048 0 –  100.00% Green 333 0 –  1.53% Nonpartisan   61,069 71,372 + 16.87% Libertarian   174 851 + 389.08% Tweet

LPIN Candidate Package

I’ve put together a package for Libertarian candidates in Indiana. The rules for a Libertarian in Indiana are totally different than R’s and D’s, and many clerks may not know the laws and procedures that we follow. Also, most of our candidates are running for the first time, and are not full time candidates. This is almost every file you’ll need to get started, as well as some explanations of our process. View it here. While this is for Indiana, other states could copy this to help their candidates start on the right foot. Tweet
