Libertarian Party of Miami-Dade County (or LPMDC) is an affiliate of the Libertarian Party of Florida. Created in 2012, the affiliate now counts over 1,500 voters.

The LPMDC, which covers the largest county in Florida, has elected 5 Libertarians in local offices and is one of the few affiliates in the state to operate out of a physical office, located in Miami, FL. Since April 2017, its Chair is Marialexandra Garcia, who also serves as an elected official on a local board.

Background

The Libertarian Party of Miami-Dade County (LPMDC) is a county affiliate of the Libertarian Party of Florida, which itself serves as a state arm for the Libertarian National Committee. The LPMDC serves the most populated county in Florida, Miami-Dade County, and attempts to influence local governments toward policies matching its platform.

Miami-Dade County is a large urban county with its government seat present in the City of Miami. As of 14 May 2018, it has 1,383,387 registered voters, including 580,453 Democrats, 367,140 Republicans, 1,599 Libertarians, and 430,822 voters with no party affiliation, setting the county as a solid Democratic stronghold during general elections.

Miami-Dade County has a central government led by a strong mayor elected on an at-large basis, and 13 County Commissioners, each elected in nonpartisan elections for four-year terms. The county is made of 34 municipalities with their own local governments, and 10 unincorporated areas with their own elected zoning boards.

Organization

Executive Committee

The Executive Committee of the Libertarian Party of Miami-Dade County is made of Precinct Delegates, who are elected every year in April by Libertarians living in individual precincts. Any individual registered to vote with the Libertarian Party of Florida according to state laws may run to be a Precinct Delegate. Among themselves, the Precinct Delegates elect the Officers, which are the Chair, Vice-Chair, Executive Director, Secretary, and Treasurer.

The Chair of the affiliate appoints each Committee Director. Precinct Delegates that do not serve as Officers join a Committee of their choice.
