Presidential Straw Poll

All Libertarian Party members in attendance may participate in our straw poll for the Libertarian Party nomination for President of the United States. Results will be announced before the close of events at 4 P.M.



We have this opportunity to provide this event for several reasons. Our membership is growing rapidly. The owner of the gorgeous Agora Grand Event Center has been most generous with the venue. Guest speakers have agreed to entertain and enlighten us.

To make this event a huge success, we do need your help in many forms:

  • Be sure to attend.
  • Donate to help offset costs, as there are no admission fees.
  • Attend the business portion of the convention. We need people to take an active role in the LPME.
  • Volunteer to help during the Convention, Liberty Summit, as well as setup and cleanup before and after the day's events.
  • Donate prizes for lucky draw
