Vote Libertarian and break two-party duopoly

Posted 21 October 2020 at 11:50 am


If you’re considering voting for Donald Trump or Joe Biden and you live in New York State, you’re wasting your time.

That’s right, to vote for Trump or Biden in New York State is to throw your vote away. Trump has zero chance of winning New York’s electoral votes; New York City will ensure Joe Biden wins this state. Biden does not need your vote. Your vote has literally zero impact on the 2020 Presidential Election!

Or does it? There is another candidate in the race: Libertarian Jo Jorgensen. A vote for Jorgensen is not a wasted vote. A vote for Jorgensen is a vote towards the 5 percent of the popular vote she needs to secure federal recognition of the Libertarian Party as an official party.

A vote for Jorgensen also goes toward the 150,000 votes she needs to preserve the Libertarian Party of New York’s official status and ballot access. The ballot access threshold has been sharply increased this year, endangering the ballot access of third parties.

Active third parties force the Democrats and Republicans to be better parties. The Libertarian Party is America’s largest and strongest third party. It is the best-poised of all third-parties to break through the two-party duopoly establishment and emerge as America’s next major party.

Whether you are a Democrat or a Republican, you probably believe your party has room for improvement. The Libertarian Party can help your party improve! A Libertarian Party of New York with ballot access can continue to help your local party become a better party, one that aligns more with your beliefs and your values.

Make your vote count this election. Force your party to be better.

Vote for Libertarian Jo Jorgensen.

Chairperson of the Libertarian Party of Orleans County
