In a political system typically split between the Republican and Democratic parties, third party candidates are generally relegated to support roles in local, state and national elections. But, the Libertarian Party is attempting to change the political landscape by rallying candidates for offices up for election this year. According to the party’s website, www.lp.org, 37 Libertarians will be featured on the November General Election ballot for a variety of local, state and national positions in Ohio, Illinois, Idaho, Maryland and Mississippi, among others, and that number is growing.
