Name Change

CO-ClipBoard-June-1994-Cover.png

At the 1994 State Party Convention, the delegates changed the name of the affiliate from the Colorado Libertarian Party to the Libertarian Party of Colorado. Colorado Clipboard Volume 15, Number 6 (June 6, 1994) The change was needed so that candidates would be listed on the ballot as "Libertarian" rather than "Colorado Libertarian."

Ballot Access History

Due to the tireless efforts of many, and noteably David Aitken, Minor Party Bill (HB98-1110) was signed into law in 1998, creating arguably the easiest ballot access for minor parties in the country. See: Libertarian Party of Colorado Ballot Access History.

It's Official: We're a Party![1]
ColLibCover-1998-05.png

Romer Signs HB-98-1110 DENVER, CO The Libertarian Party, America's third largest and fastest growing party, has become Colorado's first fully qualified minor political party. "This great news for the Libertarian Party and our 2,900 members in Colorado is due to Governor Romer's signing of HB-98-1110 on April 13," said Libertarian Party of Colorado Chairman Sandra Johnson, of Ft. Garland.

The new law redefines requirements for minor party status in Colorado, and significantly liberalizes the nomination process for candidates of those parties.

"We have made several minor changes to our party constitution and bylaws that will enable us to meet the new requirements," said Johnson. "These changes were passed by our members at our annual state convention, which was held April 24-26 at the Sheraton Denver West Hotel in Lakewood. We are in the process of applying to the Secretary of State for certification as Colorado's first official minor party."

"We thank Representative Ron Tupa (D-Boulder) and Senator Tilman Bishop (R-Mesa County), sponsors of HB-98-1110, the bi-partisan legislature, and Governor Romer for injecting some healthy and long overdue competition into the political process. For years, voters in Colorado and nationwide have been clamoring for more choices at the ballot box.

Indeed, we believe this lack of choice, not apathy, is the primary reason that only 48% of registered voters actually bothered to vote in the 1996 elections."

"We're looking forward to taking a much more active and visible role in Colorado politics," said Johnson.

"With the elimination of petitioning requirements for our candidates, for the first time we will be able to focus our efforts on actually winning races. Virtually all of our very limited resources have in the past gone to just getting our candidates onto the ballot."

"We're excited and encouraged by this long overdue change, as well as the unprecedented opportunities coming up this year," said Johnson.

"Due to term limits and other factors, we project that two-thirds to three-quarters of the races for the state legislature will not include an incumbent. The opportunities to elect a Libertarian to the Colorado Legislature have never been better."

After two gloriously successful years as Chair of the Libertarian Party of Colorado, Sandra Johnson handed over the Party's leadership to Michele Bethke on April 26.

Thanks for the passage of HB-98-1110 must go to David Aitken, for writing the bill; Judd Ptak for constant lobbying with Ron Tupa, (D-Boulder), the House sponsor; and to everyone who called their Senator or Representative to persuade them to support this epochal bill.
