- There’s a wiki area of the National website just for candidates. This is a gathering place for articles, resources, and information created by Libertarians for Libertarian candidates. Think of it as a library which will be expanded constantly. URL: https://helpdesk.lp.org/wiki/

Kyle O’Donnell has provided this advice for Candidates:
Liberty friends, I built a process to build your own microtargeting lists, in preparation for the upcoming election cycle and wanted to share it with you all
- Begin with your voter registration database and a large county or regional FB group with that has political content. I bought mine from the county board of elections.
- Find a post that has hundreds or thousands of engagement for an issue/topic you want to microtarget voters with OR avoid talking about certain issues.
- Highlight all the likes and hearts or angry reacts, depending on the for/against list you’re building.
- Open Excel, paste special, just “values.” This strips out all the HTML and leaves rows of just names
- In the voter registration database, filtered to those that voted in the last gubernatorial election, CONCAT first name, space, last name.
- In your microtarget list, we need to standardize the names to match the voter registration database. Text-to-columns to break each part of their name into a separate column.
- Throw out middle names and CONCAT back into first name, space, last name in one cell.
- Now that everything is standardized, VLOOOUP your microtarget list against the voter registration list.
- I got an exact match with ~275 people or 53% that liked a piece of local-issue political content who also voted in the past gubernatorial election.
When we make 3 major campaign issues, it’s kind of bland, general, often intellectual, and not relevant to each voter’s personal passionate issue(s). By using microtargeting lists, we can communicate in a way that really excites voters and makes them feel a sense of shared values and awareness that hopefully translates into votes on election day. Still do the major issues for public consumption, just also microtarget people individually.
- We are vetting the tools available. As we find good solution, we will add them here.
Campaign Support Staff Recommendations
- What, are we in the 2010's? Kidding, of course. As we find books we can recommend, we will add them here.

Tema: Sostenemos que los derechos humanos no deben ser negados o abreviados en función de la nacionalidad o el origen nacional. El derecho a viajar libremente entre Estados y naciones es un derecho fundamental. Los humanos deben ser libres de abandonar regímenes tiránicos. Los empleados, empleadores y contratistas deben tener la libertad de negociar sin interferencias ni restricciones gubernamentales.
Principio: Nos oponemos a las restricciones estatales de inmigración, ya sea con el propósito de cooperar con restricciones federales o de otra manera. Nos oponemos firmemente a todas las medidas que castigan a los empleadores que contratan a trabajadores indocumentados. El estado no tiene ningún negocio que regule las interacciones productivas y voluntarias entre las partes que dan su consentimiento.
Transición: A los no ciudadanos indocumentados no se les debe negar la libertad fundamental de trabajar o moverse sin impedimentos. Nos oponemos a los pagos de asistencia social del gobierno a los no ciudadanos, al igual que nos oponemos a los pagos de asistencia social a todas las demás personas.
The purpose of the State Level Strategic Plan is to:
- Communicate to members our key areas of focus for 2018
- Provide a baseline against with to measure progress against our plans
- Provide a framework which can be used by VPs/Regions as they develop their 2018 Strategic Plans
- Use SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Time Specific) goals
2017 was the first year that the NJLP created a formal Strategic Plan, in order to communicate to members our key areas of focus and provide a baseline against with to measure progress. We used the SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Time Specific) model for our defining goals.
Below are those goals and, for each, how we did. Some goals were achieved, some partially achieved, and others not achieved. Our performance on each will provide useful input for the 2018 Strategic Plan.
The Party manages a number of email lists. The lists can be broken down into two categories, moderated and non-moderated:
- Highly moderated announce type lists should be used infrequently for announcement and news types of emails. All posting must be approved by the moderator. Emails should be professional. Examples of these lists include:
- members- a statewide email list of current and past party members. Only the Chair of the party (or a designee) should use this list. All members who join the party are added to this list.
- prospects - a statewide email list of prospects. Only the Chair of the party (or a designee) should use this list. All emails that are given to us by national or via our website are added to this list.
We get many emails from people asking how they can help or how they can get involved in the party. Hopefully this article can be used as a guide on how to get involved.
Make no mistake, just because we may drop the ball and either not give you specific tasks, take too long to get back to you, or forget to get back to you at all - does not mean that your activism is not needed. Actually quite the opposite is true. The freedom movement needs more activists who are willing to help out in any way they can.
