LPNY Launches 2024 Statewide Petition Drive

On April 16, 2024, the Libertarian Party of New York launched a petition drive on the first day of petitioning to get our stand-in candidates on the ballot. At least 45,000 signatures are needed in order to place the Libertarian Party’s Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates on the ballot.

Larry Sharpe is standing in as the Presidential candidate and Rich Purtell is standing in as the Vice Presidential candidate. After petitions are turned in, the stand-in candidates can withdraw, and the Committee on Vacancies can replace the stand-in candidates with the candidates nominated at the National Convention.

The LPNY declined to nominate a candidate for U.S. Senate in order to partner with Diane Sare, Indepndent candidate for U.S. Senate, in the petitioning drive. As a result, the LPNY does not have a U.S. Senate candidate on our petitions.

Petitioning is going on now, and the filing dates are May 21-28, 2024. During that time, the Libertarian Party of New York needs over 45,000 signatures, but our goal is 60,000 signature in order to withstand any challnges to the petitions.

The petitioning portal is linked right on the lpny.org website. There, you will find the petitions and instructions. We also have a few downballot candidates and so if you live in the area, collect for those candidates as well. 

Whoever is nominated for President at the Libertarian National Convention will only be on the New York ballot if we get enough signatures by May 28.

If you have any questions or need help with petitioning, feel free to reach out to us!
