2020 General Election

The 2020 General Election is coming up in November.

The Libertarian Party candidate for President is Jo Jorgensen and our candidate for Vice President is Spike Cohen.

There will be Libertarians running for local offices as well, and many measures that could mean higher taxes. See below for more information on each of these topics.
