There are seven delegate spots available for Northwest Michigan. At this time four individuals have expressed interest in representing our area. The members who attend the August 15th caucus will select representatives.
To represent NW Michigan as a voting delegate, you should be a current member of the Libertarian Party of Michigan, and live in one of the following counties: Charlevoix, Antrim, Leelanau, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska, Benzie, Manistee, Wexford, and Missaukee.
You must become a member of the Libertarian Party of Michigan at least 30 days before the convention.
This is the LPM’s first nominating convention under the new election laws.
Delegates to the convention will select nominees for Lieutenant Governor, Secretary of State, and Attorney General. Up to two nominees for State Board of Education, MSU Board of Trustees, U of M Board of Regents, WSU Board of Governors, and Justice of the Supreme Court will be chosen as well.
Delegates will also debate amendments to the LPM platform among other items of business.
During lunch, our Libertarian Campaign Kick-Off will take place, featuring remarks from the first LPM gubernatorial primary winner—Bill Gelineau (liberty4gov.org) or John Tatar (johnjtatar.com)—and a special presentation by the Campaign Committee and our other Libertarian Party candidates.
