From Andy Craig at IPR, March 14th: 

With attention focused on the Republican and Democratic primaries in several states that could potentially decide their nominations, two states will be having Libertarian presidential preference primaries on Tuesday, March 15: North Carolina and Missouri.

Voters who are registered as either Libertarian or unaffiliated can vote in the semi-open North Carolina Libertarian primary, where the following 11 candidates will be on the ballot:

Gary Johnson
Marc Allan Feldman
John David Hale
Cecil Ince
Steve Kerbel
Darryl Perry
Austin Petersen
Derrick Reid
Jack Robinson
Rhett Smith
Barbara Joy Waymire

All Missouri voters can participate in the open primary, where these five candidates will appear on the Libertarian ballot:

Marc Allan Feldman
Cecil Ince
Steve Kerbel
Austin Petersen
Rhett Smith

These will be the two state-run Libertarian presidential primaries held prior to the Libertarian National Convention (May 26-30). California will hold a Libertarian primary in early June, however this will be after the party has selected its nominee. Some candidates will not appear on one or both ballots, due to early deadlines, including Gary Johnson in MO, and John McAfee in both MO and NC. The primaries in North Carolina and Missouri are purely non-binding, and play no role in the selection of delegates to the national convention, who then pick the nominee.
