Maine Legislator John Andrews Joins Libertarian Party

Ballot Access News

On January 14, Maine state representative John Andrews changed his voter registration from Republican to Libertarian.  He represents part of Oxford County and lives in the county seat, Paris.  He was first elected to the legislature in 2018, and was re-elected last month.

The Maine Libertarian Party is not now ballot-qualified, but Maine residents are permitted to register into the Libertarian Party because it has filed paperwork showing that it is intending to qualify.  Also the party has a lawsuit in U.S. District Court to regain its qualified status, which for a newly-qualifying party, requires 5,000 registered members by January 2022.
