What is the best thing you can do in order to promote liberty and libertarianism? Whether you believe Libertarians should be trying to take over government or just simply educate and spread the word about libertarianism, the answer is the same: Run for office!
We have about 3 months left until candidate filings are due for 2016. (The due date is December 14th, 2015.) So, if you are at all interested, please send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can either answer your questions or go ahead and get started with your paperwork. There are many offices to run for on the federal, state, and local levels. As a Dallas County resident, you can look up which offices you are eligible to run for as a Libertarian or a non-partisan. Local campaigns are highly encouraged, as the LP tends to do better in smaller races, even electing some to office in Texas!
Please consider running even if you just want to lend your name to the ballot as a paper candidate. Yes, for some offices, the LP encourages you to run to give the people the option of a liberty candidate.
Here is some initial information from the LP state party. Let’s rock 2016!
