New Jersey Libertarian Party

The Party of Principle

NJ Libertarian Party Grows Again - Again

In 2001, an appeals court ruled that New Jersey's practice of not allowing anyone to register to vote as anything other than Democrat, Republican, or Independent was unconstitutional. This was the result of a lawsuit brought by a coalition of political parties, including the NJ Libertarian Party.

Since then the number of registered libertarians has been steadily growing. The 2016 numbers show 5,391 registered Libertarians. This is a 109.5% growth from the prior year.

We are 77% larger than the next biggest party (the Green Party at 3,049) making us without a doubt the largest third party in the state of New Jersey.

Help us to keep this momentum! If you are not a party member consider joining the party. If you are not registered as a libertarian please consider changing your voter registration declaration.
