Libertarians to Submit “New Political Party” Petitions Monday

On Monday, June 12 at 10:00AM, the Libertarian Party of Arkansas will be delivering petitions to the Arkansas Secretary of State’s office to become a “new political party” for the 2018 elections.  This will be the fourth consecutive election cycle in which the LP has petitioned to be a “new political party” in Arkansas.
Arkansas law requires a new political party to collect 10,000 valid voter signatures during a 90-day period.  Over the past two months or so the party has collected over 15,000 signatures.  After some brief remarks from LP officials at the State Capitol, and opportunities for reporters’ questions, the petitions will be delivered to the Elections Division of the Secretary of State’s office.
