Gerrit R. Cain is a Libertarian Party activist. He was Secretary of the Chautauqua County Libertarian Party from 2018 to 2022. He also served on the Libertarian Party of New York State Committee from 2020 to 2022. He ran for Chautauqua County Legislature District 16 in 2019 and 2021.
2019 Campaign for County Legislator
In 2019, Cain ran for Chautauqua County Legislator in District 16 to challenge Republican Party incumbent John Davis. Since the Libertarian Party of New York had recently gained ballot access due to Larry Sharpe's campaign receiving over 50,000 votes, the Libertarian Party did not need to petition, and so Cain was on the ballot. His campaign Treasurer was Andrew Kolstee. He was officially endorsed by the Chautauqua County Libertarian Party at its 2019 convention. 
The results were as follows:
|Candidate||Party||Carroll 1||Carroll 2||Kiantone||Poland 1||Poland 2||Total||Candidate Total||Percent|
2021 Campaign for County Legislator
In 2021, Cain ran again for Chautauqua County Legislator in District 16. Since the Libertarian Party of New York had lost ballot access, Cain had to petition during the independent petitioning period, of which he gathered over 100 signatures. He also gathered signatures for the Conservative Party line, but was not given a Certificate of Authorization to run on that line. His opponent, Republican incumbent John Davis, was endorsed by the Conservative Party. This race was also a three-way race, as the Democratic Party also had a candidate running.
