Kentucky Libertarian Party Has More Nominees for State House than Any Other Third Party in Over 100 Years

Ballot Access News

In the November 2020 election, Kentucky has 100 state house seats to fill. The Libertarian Party has nominees in eight of those 100 races. While this is not a stunningly high number, it is the most state house nominees any Kentucky party has had for that office, other than the Democratic and Republican Parties, since the 1910’s decade. Traditionally, Kentucky has been a state without strong minor parties.

The previous high number for a minor party in state house races in Kentucky had been in 1971, when the American Party had six.

In 2020, the Libertarian Party also has three nominees for State Senate. In 2018, the Libertarian Party did not have any state senate nominees, and only had three for state house.
