History

The Libertarian Party of Ohio (LPO) was created in 1972. Over the years, Ohio Libertarians have been elected to a number of local offices. From the beginning, the mission of the LPO is to make an impact on the political and policy environment in Ohio. The LPO core issues have been limited government, lower taxes, and greater personal liberty.

The LPO has been in the middle of several lawsuits involving ballot access and has succeeded in getting one ballot access law overturned in 2008.
