Political activities

In 2018, Sarwark was seated as a member of the Arizona Delegation to that year's National Convention. In 2020, after moving to New Hampshire, she was seated as a part of New Hampshire's delegation to the 2020 National Convention.

In 2020, Sarwark was elected to an at-large seat on the executive committee of the Southern New Hampshire Libertarian Party, succeeding Andrew J. Olding who declined to run for a second term. Later, in mid-2020, she declared her intention to seek election to the Libertarian National Committee as an at-large representative. In running, Sarwark signed a pledge to make fundraising development a priority in her term on the National Committee. She emphasized her experience dealing with children as a qualification for serving on the LNC, and indicated she would make an effort to make the party more welcoming to parents and women. On July 12, 2020, she was soundly elected to one of five seats, receiving the votes of 353 delegates.


Running for LNC At-Large, Sarwark was endorsed by many party leaders and caucuses.
