Why is the Libertarian Party not in the Primary?

A:

The Executive Committee of the LPWV has made the decision to opt out of the WV Primary Election and nominate its 2016 candidates by convention. This decision was based on many factors, with the primary being:

  • It saves the state taxpayers money.
  • It gives the LPWV more control over the process.
  • It provides a larger campaign window and additional benefits to the candidates over the primary process.
