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 is May 13th; you can file to be a candidate in this primary election here. You can read the full set of bylaws amendment proposals here. Arguments for or against each bylaws amendment proposal may be submitted in the form of a statement of no more than 150 words ($200) or no more than 325 words ($350), which will be published in the Libertarian Voters' Guide.
