Libertarians go online to select presidential candidate
The Arizona Libertarian Presidential Preference Primary Election will take place online Jan. 30 through Feb. 5, using Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) with candidate information links.
RCV allows voters to rank candidates in order of preference, better reflecting voter intent. The winning nominee must receive a majority of the vote, not a plurality.
All registered Libertarians are encouraged to study the candidate’s positions and participate. Voting instructions will be posted online prior to the election at www.lpelection.com.
The Arizona Libertarian Party (AZLP) has statewide ballot status as a major political party. By statute, the AZLP was invited by the state to participate in a Presidential Preference Primary Election in which party members cast votes that are non-enforceable upon the convention delegates.
The AZLP decided to save Arizona taxpayers from this expense and hold the election as an internal party function.
