The Libertarian Party of Nevada (LPNevada) is hosting a "Speed Dating" format meet and greet for all 2016 non-Libertarian candidates. The purpose of these events are to learn about other candidates and see who is most aligned with the Libertarian Party views and political philosophy. There are 2 event types; “Meet The Libertarian Leadership” for Judicial Candidates and “Endorsement Interviews” for all other offices.
The results of our speed dating event(s) will be published in our 2016 Libertarian Voter Guide. The 2016 Voter Guide will be distributed far and wide to all Libertarians, Nevada voters and members of statewide coalitions.
Format - Why "Speed Dating?"
Our goal is to meet with as many candidates as possible in determining endorsements and grades. Most organizations do not get one-on-one interaction with the candidates, we feel this is important. All Candidates are also encouraged to attend Libertarian Party of Nevada events, visit our event schedule at www.LPNevada.org/events.
The Libertarian Party of Nevada is populating our Endorsement Committee. The Endorsement Committee is comprised of 15 members and 5 alternates. The Committee members will conduct their independent research on each of the Candidates and ask them questions at our events. Upon completion of the events, the Endorsement Committee Chair will gather all the endorsements and grade and the results will be published in out 2016 Libertarian Voter Guide.
