The LPO conducts its own primary election at its own expense, independently of the state of Oregon’s primary. Our primary election determines what candidates we will nominate to the general election and will also contain a set of bylaws amendment proposals that have been referred to the membership by the LPO State Convention held on May 15, 2021.

The deadline to apply to run in the LPO primary election was May 13th, but you may still let the board know of your interest in running by contacting us to request being appointed as a candidate for a race that does not have a candidate for the general election.

The full Libertarian Voter's Guide for the primary election includes Candidate Statements, Bylaws Amendment Proposals, and Bylaws Amendment Arguments.

Use this link to read the complete rules for our primary election. Note that non-LPO members seeking our “fusion” nomination are at a strong disadvantage, per our bylaws provision (Article 8, Sec. 2, subsection B) covering non-member candidates.
