Early voting has started in most states, so make sure to get-out-the-vote. Whether you are planning to vote early or on Election Day, don't forget to bring a friend with you. Now is the time, so get-out-the-vote!

Map and Voter Population at your local PRECINCTS.

Volunteers, please be strategic with your time, access the map on precincts in your area, pick the ones with the highest population of voters, and head to that polling place TUESDAY to give out Gary Johnson and LPHC voter guides.

Each Precinct has a 3 digit #. Find the numbered precinct on the map, cross check it against the list, and head out to the precinct with the highest voter population.

If you have Gary Johnson yard signs, pull them from your own yard and bring them to the polls.

Kevin and Susie, the Hillsborough and Central Florida GJ Coordinators have rack cards and stickers in abundance and can provide you all the hand-out materials you may need. Contact them at [email protected] or [email protected] .

Volunteers like yourselves are what make a difference in our communities. Thank you all.

"Operation Citizens Tsunami "
Who can help record the debate questions?  Let's get Gary and Jill and heck even Bernie answer the questions.... create our own video version of the debate (including ad breaks with Gary and Jill and even Bernie ads running). Post it on YouTube and go viral. We might get even more and better publicity doing it ourselves than being included in the "televised version".
Let "Operation Citizens Tsunami" waves begin to roll . . . .   [email protected]

"Alexandria – The Libertarian Party has formally requested that the General Services Administration (GSA) designate the 2016 Libertarian presidential nominees, Governor Gary Johnson and Governor William Weld, as "eligible candidates" under the Presidential Transition Act of 1963 (PTA).

The designation, determined by GSA Administrator Denise Turner Roth, would entitle the Libertarian candidates to receive national security briefings, among other services and facilities.


Under the PTA, candidates may be deemed eligible provided that they:

(I) meet the requirements described in Article II, Section 1, of the United States Constitution for eligibility to the office of President;

(II) have qualified to appear on the ballots of a sufficient number of States such that the total number of electors appointed in those States is greater than 50 percent of the total number of electors appointed in all of the States; and

(III) have demonstrated a significant level of public support in national public opinion polls, so as to be realistically considered among the principal contenders for President or Vice-President of the United States.


Prior to 2010 this designation was customary and traditional. In 2010 these provisions were codified and the responsibility over them was given to the GSA to administer.


Libertarian Party candidates Gary Johnson and William Weld meet or exceed all of these requirements. They should therefore be deemed eligible under the PTA immediately, the letter states.

“The old party candidates have had access to security briefings for weeks now. Gary Johnson is a major party candidate, on every American’s ballot, and he needs access to the same information as his challengers so the American people can hear his take on a level playing field. I hope this was just an oversight on the part of the GSA, and this request will set things right in short order,” stated Libertarian National Committee Chair Nicholas Sarwark.

Productive Work Day
Sept 10th, 2016

New shirts arrived - folded and sorted by sizes for door-to-door canvasers


Another case of Rack Cards came in for Central FL.   Hillsborough collected theirs and stickers them with our labels.


Downloaded end of August voters and sorted by party and precinct to replenish canvassers.

Pass out information about the Libertarian Candidate for the President of the US to all the active voters out voting during the August 30th Primary.

Bring your signs and stay outside of the markers - catching them walking on the way out is best - because our candidate is not on the primary ballot.

20 Press Passes, and 625 spectators equal an over capacity FIU Theatre.  There remained an additional 50+ people outside the doors that we simply did not have room for and regrettably had to turned away.  Both Governors were gracious and went out to speak with them before the event.
