We are pleased to report that the Franklin County Board of Elections has accepted our plan to be included in the March 17th, 2020 Ohio primary election.
Seven years, $250 thousand dollars, hundreds of volunteer hours and 102 thousand signatures from liberty minded Ohioans. This is what it has taken for the Libertarian Party of Ohio to be recognized and allowed to participate in Ohio public elections again.
We have pushed this as far as we can. We need you to take the next step and lead the Franklin County Libertarians to success.
I am inviting you to get involved and submit the linked Declaration of Candidacy to become a member of the Franklin County Libertarian Party Central Committee. Print out the form, fill it out, put it in an envelope, add a stamp and place it in the mail before Dec 18th. You do not need any signatures beyond your own! When your declaration is received by the Board of Elections you will show them that Libertarians are more then arm-chair activists; we are in our communities, contributing and working.
What does it mean to be a Central Committee Member?
Partisan Duties & Responsibilities
Here is a list of opportunities for every township or ward committee member.
- Represent the Township or Ward to the Party
- Attend meetings of the Libertarian Central Committee to organize and supervise the County Libertarian Party operations and to endorse candidates (3 or 4 a year).
- Vote in the election of local Libertarian Township or Ward Leaders.
- Participate in local and county meetings and events.
Local Non-Partisan Leadership
As a Central Committee Member in your ward or township, you are a leader in your neighborhood regardless of the strength of our party in your community. You will find that candidates and public officials of all parties will be interested in your ideas as to what needs to be done in your community.
We have little time for this crucial next step. The filing deadline, Dec 18th, is fast approaching. We need as many Libertarians as possible to make their voices heard and loudly show the establishment that we will not be silenced or held back.
We are counting on you to move the Franklin County Libertarian Party forward again.
Thanks in advance.
Your colleague in liberty,
Chair, Executive Committee
Franklin County Libertarian Party of Ohio
