Libertarians qualify for statewide races

Seven Georgia Libertarian Party candidates qualified for statewide races last week.

Republican and Democratic candidates qualified to run for office in the July primary at the end of April. But other political hopefuls – such as members of the Libertarian Party – had to wait until June 26 to officially get on the state’s November general election ballot.

Why? Georgia law recognizes only two political parties: Democrats and Republicans. Everyone else is defined as an independent, political body or non-partisan candidate.

Also, the Gwinnett Daily Post has a good article on the Libertarian Party candidates.
