PETITIONING HAS BEGUN!

Welcome to the 2024 LPNY petitioning portal! Here, you can find all the resources and updates for our 2024 petitioning drive. Our goal is to collect over 60,000 petition signatures for our statewide candidates and you can help us!

Please use the following petitions to gather signatures for our candidates. We need your help to get our candidates on the ballot, and provide a choice for voters on Election Day (November 5).

Use these resources on this page to help you petition and also print out copies of the petition sheets (see below). If you want to help collect signatures and you have any questions, or you want to report an incident you experienced while petitioning, please contact us at petitioning@lpny.og

Please read the 2024 Petitioning Guide. It contains all information on petitioning, including tips to help you be more successful. You can even download and/or print it.

Statewide Collector

While petitions can be collected and reviewed locally, all petitions will need to ultimately be sent to our Statewide Petition Collector:

Stephen Healey
2319 Shirl Lane
Schenectady, NY 12309

Statewide Petition Sheets: President and Vice President

Use the statewide petition sheet for the statewide candidates: Larry Sharpe (President) and Rich Purtell (Vice President). They are stand-in candidates because the Libertarian National Convention will be held at the end of the petitioning period. Once the nominees are known, the stand-in candidates can step down in favor of the candidates nominated at the National Convention.

Note: If you are unable to print sheets and would like us to mail blank copies to you, contact us and we will mail you some.

2nd Statewide Petition: U.S. Senate

When you go out and petition, we also urge that you ask voters to sign this petition for Diane Sare, Independent candidate for U.S. Senate. The Libertarian Party is not running a U.S. Senate candidate this and we have partnered with Diane Sare and her team to double petition and help each other get on the ballot! Click here to see instructions for turning in Sare petitions.

Cross-County Candidates: Statewide Petition + Senate / Assembly Districts

If you live in a district where we are running a candidate for State Senate or State Assembly, you can also help us get that candidate on the ballot in addition to the statewide candidates. Use the map to view the borders of the districts. These petitions include our 4 statewide candidate as well as the Assembly or Senate candidate.

General information on Petitioning

  • Petitioning Period. Only collect signatures during the petitioning period. For statewide offices, it is April 16, 2024 to May 28, 2024. You will need get the petition sheets to your local or regional coordinator or directly to the Statewide Petition Collector (see above) on a weekly basis, so we can prepare the petitions for turn-in. Please note the address below for sending us your petition sheets.
  • Who can sign/witness? Anyone registered as New York State voter can sign or circulate (witness) our petition, in any district. However, you cannot both sign and witness the same petition. Have a friend witness the petition that you sign. In most cases, you will want a signer to fill in their address and print their name, but all a signer has to do is sign, and you can fill out the rest. If you make any corrections, initial the change.
  • Which address do I use? You and those who sign the petitions need to use the address in which they are registered to vote. You can find out where you are registered to vote, and which districts you live in, by using the NYS Voter Registration search. Please note the RESIDENTIAL ADDRESS, TOWN and COUNTY where you are registered to vote. You will need to fill these in for the Witness Statement at the bottom of your petition sheet. You fill this part out after each sheet is full of signatures. If you put your village, hamlet, or postal address instead of your town, the entire sheet will be invalid under New York’s arcane petitioning rules.

Need Local Help Petitioning?

We have a number of County Petitioning coordinators. You can contact your County Coordinator for petitioning help and networking. County Coordinators can coordinate petitioning events (for petitioning in groups) and workshops as well as collect petitions in their regions, so they can send them to the Petition Collector. You can also send petitions directly to the Statewide Petitiong Collector (as mentioned above).

 

Need help with petitioning? No problem!

Contact us at petitioning@lpny.org if you have any questions or to report any incidents while you are petitioning. If police are attempting to interfere with your right to petition and you are in a public space such as a sidewalk, public park, public parking lot, or public festival, you can report such incidents to us.

You can sent us photos/scan of any petition sheet you have if you are unsure if the information has been added correctly and we can help you ensure we are getting valid signatures.
