The Libertarian Party of San Francisco is a county organization of the Libertarian Party of California. The city and county of San Francisco are contiguous, with a unified government, so unlike the other county parties in California, the LPSF is directly concerned with a single municipality.


Some of the main activities of the LPSF circa 2018 include:

  • Filing ballot arguments each year to be published in the San Francisco Voter Handbook distributed each election to several hundred thousand registered San Francisco voters (some free arguments selected as official ballot arguments by lottery, others paid arguments typically costing several hundred dollars each, based on the number of words).
  • Operating an outreach booth for two days at San Francisco Pride festival each year
  • Issuing voting recommendations on local ballot measures
  • Leaders speaking at local schools
  •  Hosting an annual panel discussion event (started out as a Tax Day event)
  • Periodically running candidates for local office
  • Publishing commentary on, principally about local political issues
