Libertarian Party of Miami-Dade County (or LPMD) is an affiliate of the Libertarian Party of Florida (or LPF). Created in 2012, the affiliate serves over 2,200 LPF voters.

The LPMD covers the largest county in Florida. Since January 2023, its Chair is Hector Roos.


The Libertarian Party of Miami-Dade County (LPMD) is a county affiliate of the Libertarian Party of Florida. It 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 31 May 2022, it has 1,593,441 registered voters, including 617,647 Democrats, 441,877 Republicans, 2,240 Libertarians, 21,497 other third party voters, and 507,946 voters with no party affiliation.

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.


The Libertarian Party of Miami-Dade County has incorporated the platforms of the Libertarian Party of Florida and the Libertarian Party, which are based on principles supporting a decrease in government power, reducing tax rates across the board, fighting against increased bureaucracy and red tape, ending the war on drugs, pushing for criminal justice reform, promoting free trade and a more liberal immigration system, while opposing government intervention in education, science, and other societal concepts.

On the local level, LPMD supports a loosening in zoning laws, reduction of private-public partnerships (and the cronyism it encourages), and elimination of government subsidies. All leases of public lands must be made at a fair market rate without waivers of competitive bidding.

The Platform of the Libertarian Party of Miami-Dade County is written by its Policy Committee and confirmed annually at the affiliate's Convention by attending members.



Executive Committee

The LPMD Executive Committee is composed of Precinct Delegates, who are elected each year by Libertarians living in individual precincts; in 2023, elections are slated to be changed from April to January. Any individual registered to vote with the Libertarian Party of Florida and a resident of Miami-Dade County may run to be a Precinct Delegate. LPF-registered voters residing in Miami-Dade County and present at the annual meeting may nominate, run, and elect the Officers (Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, Treasurer).

The LPMD Chair appoints each Committee Chair and committee member(s).
