On March 15th, both Missouri and North Carolina held presidential primaries for the Libertarian Party. The contests do not carry any binding in terms of how delegates will be assigned, but served as one of the first real indicators gauging support among the Libertarian Party presidential candidates. In Missouri, the “uncommitted” option came in first with Austin Petersen a distant second, while Gary Johnson (who was not on the ballot in Missouri) won in North Carolina, with “no preference” coming in second.

The Missouri results are from the Missouri Secretary of State, while the North Carolina results are from the North Carolina State Board of Elections. (North Carolina has a county map that includes a breakdown of the vote by county, accessible here).
