Libertarian Party secures ballot access in upcoming elections
November 9, 2012 ·
One point three percent of total votes from Tuesday’s election may not seem like much, but it was just enough for the Libertarian party to regain uninhibited ballot access through and including the 2016 general election in West Virginia.
Libertarian party gubernatorial candidate David Moran
secured his party’s access in upcoming elections by pulling at least 1 percent
of the vote in this week’s general election. Moran says he and the party hope to continue the Libertarian's momentum by having a primary before the next
“What I will do personally is to work to find a person or
people that would like to compete in a primary. We would like to do that very
much, because it will help sharpen the focus on the principles that we stand for.
I may or may not be a candidate myself. If there are no other candidates, then
I certainly will be a candidate.
"However, it’s most important to me to find the
right people for the future–much more important than for me to continue to seek
the office myself.”
the party’s immediate objectives include identifying representatives from each
of the 55 counties to communicate with residents, as well as reaching out to
students at colleges and universities around the state to educate them about
the party's platform.
