Tar Heel Libertarian - November 2023

Volume 3, Issue 14 | November 2023

Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies. ― Ernest Benn

In this Issue... 

In our November 2023 issue, Ryan pauses to thank the people that keep the party moving forward - the candidates, the volunteers, the donors, the voters, and all Liberty warriors who give of themselves with no expectation of a reward. We put out a call for candidates for next year; even though this election just ended, filing for 2024 is right around the corner. And we take a moment to celebrate the joy of the 2023 campaign season.

Joshua Glawson calls into question who is allowed to counterfeit money. Rob Yates reflects on running for office. Justin Hinckley debunks some of the most egregiously spread and accepted myths about mass shootings. And we have a lot coming up, including conventions, town halls, delegates, and more, all in this issue.

2024 Candidates Filing Starts Soon

Get Ready for the 2024 Election Season!

The 2023 elections are now behind us, but 2024 has even more opportunities for Libertarians. In the 2024 election season we have the opportunity to run a multitude of candidates for the state legislature. State Legislature races have a filing fee of only $140 and gives candidates the opportunity to message at forums and on surveys. There are also opportunities to run in statewide races and congressional races. The filing fee in these races is approximately 1% of the annual salary. 

The LPNC will provide space on their webpage for all candidates, and have a MatterMost channel for candidates to coordinate and discuss surveys. The LPNC will also assist candidates with other issues they may have.

If you are interested in running and live in an affiliated county then please contact your county Executive Committee and copy [email protected]. If you are an unaffiliated county please email [email protected] by December 1 so we can coordinate on filling in gaps in the candidates slate.

  • The candidate filing period for the statewide 2024 primary elections begins at noon on Monday, Dec. 4, 2023, and ends at noon Friday, Dec. 15, 2023.
