Arizona Libertarian Party Files Amended Complaint Against 2015 Law on How Libertarians For Congress, State and Local Partisan Office May Run

Ballot Access News

On September 30, the Arizona Libertarian Party filed this amended complaint in Arizona Libertarian Party v Reagan, 2:16cv-1019. Unlike the first Complaint in this case, this Complaint was written after the August 30 primary. It shows that without question, the new law on how Libertarians may run for office other than President has been devastating to the party. Only one Libertarian has been able to qualify for the ballot in Arizona this year (excluding the presidential election).

When this case was last in court, the judge expressed some hesitation to make up his mind until he and everyone else saw what happened in the primary. In theory, the Libertarians might have been able to obtain massive numbers of write-ins in the Libertarian primary, but that did not happen, even though the Libertarian turnout in its primary was fairly substantial.
