The Libertarian Party of Louisiana (LPL) was founded in 1972. It has had ballot access in Louisiana since a law changed in 2004, allowing the LPL to become an official party in Louisiana. Since 2004, candidates have been able to run for office with "Libertarian" printed on the ballot next to their name (rather than "other" as before) and registered voters have had the option of choosing the Libertarian Party as a pre-printed choice on their voter registration forms. Since 2004, registered Libertarians are designated by LBT on their registration cards rather than OTHER which is used for non-recognized parties.

As of Febraury 1st, 2013, the Party had 7,342 voters registered as Libertarian. In addition, about 140 national dues paying members reside in Louisiana. State membership dues presently start at $25.

[edit] Awards

[edit] Walking Liberty Award

This award recognizes an outstanding individual who rises above the crowd by personally spreading the Libertarian message through personal contact with more citizens and voters than anyone else. There is no requirement that it be given on a periodic basis, and is only awarded when someone meets the standard set by the inaugural recipient, T. Lee Horne, III. The award itself is a current year proof version of the Silver American Eagle[1] coin with the "Walking Liberty" design.

  • 2008 - T. Lee Horne, III {in recognition for his spreading the message of Liberty across the state during his three year RV campaign for governor for 2007}
