N.H. Libertarians Fail to Meet Threshold to Maintain Major Party Status

NHPR

New Hampshire’s Libertarian Party on Tuesday failed to earn enough votes to stay on the ballot in 2020.

In the governor’s race, candidate Jilletta Jarvis needed at least 4 percent of the vote to maintain the Libertarian’s major party status.

She won just 1.4 percent.

“I’m disappointed, obviously,” said Caleb Dyer, the party’s secretary. “I think we could have done better, and I think we should have."

Dyer lost his own seat in the New Hampshire House Tuesday. He ran as a Libertarian this year, instead of a Republican as he had in 2016.
