The Capital District Libertarian Party of New York is the recognized affiliate of the Libertarian Party of New York. Our mission is to grow a party that supports all aspects of liberty in relation to our current institutions of government.
“The Libertarian Party of New York is an alternative political party in the United States active in the state of New York. It is the recognized affiliate of the national Libertarian Party. The party has been fielding gubernatorial candidates since 1974.
The Libertarian Party of New York is dedicated to the principle that free people have the right to do anything they please, except to initiate force, the threat of force, or fraud, against other persons or their property. Any law that violates this principle should be repealed. The only moral laws are those designed to protect this principle.”
The Capital District Libertarian Party recruits candidates for public office. We help candidates develop libertarian platforms, get ballot access and encourage contributions from our members for such campaigns.
While geographical area includes Albany, Schenectady, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Columbia and parts of Greene County, we encourage members of the Libertarian Party of New York to organize their own county chapters when possible. Contact one of our officers to find out how.
