Alaska Libertarian Party Appears to Still be Ballot-Qualified for President in 2020

Ballot Access News

The Alaska Libertarian Party lost its qualified status in November 2016 because it polled less than 3% for Governor (it got 1.91%). However, Alaska law says that a party that polled 3% for president at the last presidential election is a “Limited Political Party.” On December 9, 1987, the Alaska Attorney General ruled that the Libertarian Party is a “Limited Political Party” for the 1988 election because it had received 3.08% for President in November 1984. The fact that the LP had lost its qualified status in November 1986 because it had polled under 3% for Governor was no impediment to its presidential status.
