About

Welcome to the home of the state affiliate of the Libertarian Party - America's Third Largest Political Party! Join the Libertarians, the party of freedom, peace, and opportunity.

Millions of Americans have voted for Libertarian Party candidates in past elections throughout the country, despite the fact that many state governments place roadblocks in our path to keep our candidates off the ballot and deprive voters of a real choice.

Libertarians believe the answer to America's political problems is the same commitment to freedom that earned America its greatness: a free-market economy and the abundance and prosperity it brings; a dedication to civil liberties and personal freedom; and a foreign policy of non-intervention, peace, and free trade as prescribed by America's founders.

What began with a small group of activists in Colorado has become America's third largest political party. We are the only political organization which respects you as a unique and competent individual.

    The Convention adopted two resolutions:

    • The Libertarian Party of Massachusetts is calling for the immediate release of all persons incarcerated for victimless crimes, as the current COVID crisis and the expected spread among prison and jail populations with inadequate access to health care puts people in immediate danger who should not be incarcerated at all.
    • The Libertarian Party of Massachusetts also calls for easier ballot access. The current COVID-19 crisis has made petitioning in person a public health risk, aggravating the challenges for third parties, ballot initiatives, and individual candidates. Rhe Libertarian Association of Massachusetts proposes that because of the COVID-19 crisis, that all candidates for elective office this year can substitute a filing fee in lieu of nomination signatures to qualify for the ballot.

    The convention also saw a lively debate between a number of the Libertarian Presidential Candidates for 2020 moderated by Dan Fishman, the former Political Director of LAMA, candidate for State Auditor, and current Executive Director of the National Libertarian Party.
