Historical Charts

19 charts and maps of the Libertarian Party based on data I've come across or put together myself:

A link to the data and sources is on every image. It goes to a Google Drive spreadsheet. I can't post a direct link because it is blocked on LPedia by a spam filter. Data includes Richard Winger's entire Libertarian Archive and additionally 2017 data, a few write in candidates and special elections that he missed, as well as a few thousand additional local election results. There is also a lot of information from old issues of Ballot Access News, the Federal Election Commission, Libertarian Membership Reports (not all of which are available online), information gleaned from old issues of LP News, and more.

The charts and maps show:

1. Active Members/Total Donors to the LNC, 1972 - 2017
2. Active Members/Total Donors to the LNC, 1988 - 2017 in a 4 year cycle
