For forty years candidates running on the Libertarian ticket in Iowa had to wait until mid-summer to be on the ballot. In 2018 that changes. Registered voters will be able to vote for Libertarian candidates in the June 5, 2018, primary election.
The primary election may be six months away, but filing periods for candidates are fast approaching. We want to make sure Libertarians in Polk County have plenty of time to develop their campaigns and gather signatures to be on the ballot for the constitutional offices in Iowa, state House and Senate seats, Polk County offices, and the U.S. Third District representative.
We would like to hear from you if you are interested in seeking office. We would like to hear from you if you have campaign skills and are interested in serving on committees for candidates. We would like to hear from you if you are interested in volunteering or simply sharing your ideas of what you would like to see in a candidate. Contact us at email@example.com or visit our Facebook page at LibertarianPartyofPolkCountyIowa.
The 2016 presidential vote that gave the Libertarian Party of Iowa the opportunity to become a state-recognized political party was the result of hard work. It was also a result of the experience gathered over years of campaigns in the state. We are here to help our candidates in 2018.
In 2018, Iowa Senate seats in odd-numbered districts will be up for election. To see the Senate and House Districts in Polk County, visit the Polk County Auditor’s website here.
For State and Federal offices, candidates file their papers from February 26 through March 16, 2018. For County offices, the dates are March 5 through March 28, 2018.
We are looking forward to the 2018 election season and hope you will be part of it.
