Rachel Nyx (formerly Rachel Johnson) is a member of the Libertarian Party of California, serving as an At-Large Representative on the Executive Committee, and as a member of the Bylaws, Operations, and Social Media committees. She also serves as a member of the Libertarian Party of Los Angeles County as the county Vice-Chair. She is an transgender voice in the Libertarian Party and is the first openly transgender person to serve on the executive board of a political party in California.

Prior to joining the Libertarian Party of California, Nyx earned her Bachelor's Degree in Political Science from Fordham University in New York City. At Fordham, she was the Vice-President of the College Republicans, where she witnessed first hand the reality of positions of power abusing their authorities and using censorship to gain political favor when the Cornell College Republicans were expelled from the New York State Federation of College Republicans for endorsing 2016 Libertarian Presidential candidate Gary Johnson over Donald Trump. She became a prominent voice for third-party politics, publishing several articles in Fordham's school papers in support of ending the two-party system.

Since 2019, Rachel has worked as a litigation paralegal in Pasadena, CA, and as a Passport Processing Agent until the position was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In January 2020, she announced her campaign for At-Large Representative on the LPC Executive Committee, receiving endorsements from the Libertarian Party of Los Angeles County and multiple caucuses, and was successfully elected to the Committee at the 2020 Libertarian Party of California Convention.

In July 2020, Nyx was elected as Vice Chair of the Libertarian Party of LA County, serving under returning incumbent chair Angela McArdle.

On November 30, 2020, she announced her candidacy for Vice Chair of the Libertarian Party of California for the 2021-2023 term.
