New Jersey Libertarian Party Breaks 7000 Members

After seeing record growth in 2016 with a 109% increase, the New Jersey Libertarian Party has continued to grow.

As of the June primary, the state party has 7090 members, an additional 1699 Libertarians since 2016 making it the second largest amount of growth in the party’s history. 

The party is using this momentum to encourage more people to become party members and register to vote as Libertarians.

When the state party was founded in 2002, it only had around 200 Members, so it’s great to see the amount of progress the movement has made within the state. Keep up the good work New Jersey Libertarians!

Author: Luke Henderson

Since joining the Libertarian Party in 2016 (after discovering Gary Johnson as a disaffected Bernie Sanders supporter), Luke Henderson has been active in the liberty movement through journalism, and political activism. At the beginning of 2017, Luke had his first piece of writing published by Being Libertarian and quickly became a contributor to the libertarian news site, The Libertarian Vindicator. Through the Vindicator, Luke discovered his passion for addressing critics of the philosophy and bringing together different factions of liberty lovers which compelled him to become an editor for The Libertarian Coalition, a forum dedicated to an open-minded discussion of libertarian ideas from all walks. After many guest contributions to Being Libertarian, Luke was asked to join the website as a contributor, where he writes his column Scoring For Liberty, which discusses sports, politics, and economics from a libertarian lens, and his Educator series that seeks to strengthen libertarian’s understanding of educational techniques and policy to better arguments against public education. Luke is one of the District 1 Executive Committeemen for the Missouri Libertarian party, and the founder of the Missouri Chapter of the Libertarian Positivity Caucus. Outside of politics, Luke is a paraprofessional for the Special School District of St. Louis, a musician, composer, and a loving husband and father.
