With a growing number of Americans coming to libertarian views on personal freedoms, economic freedoms, and peace, Libertarians have an unprecedented opportunity to make a significant political impact in our state and our country.
Become a candidate
During even-numbered years, all 118 state representative offices are up for election, as well as a third of all Illinois state senate offices.
During odd-numbered years, municipal offices such as mayor, township trustee, library and school boards, and other local races are open for challenge.
Running for and winning these elections are a great way to help your community and demonstrate how Libertarian solutions can benefit people every day.
