Following the success of the first LP Activist Training by Libertarians for Libertarians in October, we’re taking the show on the road!
Collier County Libertarians did much more than just say “no” to more Big Government. They responded to threats of regulating Uber and other ride-sharing services with a bold proposal to deregulate the entire taxi industry—and won!
They sealed their victory on December 8 when the Board of County Commissioners voted 4-1 to finalize an earlier provisional decision.

The Libertarian Party of Kentucky, along with the Kentucky Constitution Party, has filed suit in federal court against the state of Kentucky over ballot access.
Kentucky law mandates that the only way a political party can become recognized is by polling at 2% or more in the most recent Presidential election. Kentucky is the only state in which it is impossible for a party to ever be ballot-qualified until it polls a particular share of the vote for President.
On November 19, the Ohio Libertarian Party filed a notice of appeal to the Sixth Circuit Court, over whether ballot access laws recently written by the state legislature violate the Ohio Constitution.
The Ohio Constitution states that all recognized parties must nominate by primary election, yet the ballot access laws written in 2013 state that new parties cannot nominate by primary.
