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 our 2016 Libertarian Voter Guide.
Please fill out the form below if you are interested in joining the Endorsement Committee.
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.
We are hosting the speed dating events on the following location and dates:
Paymon’s Mediterranean Café and Lounge
8380 W. Sahara Ave.
Las Vegas, NV 89117
- Saturday, October 1st, 2016 | 10:00am – 4:30pm
- Sunday, October 2nd, 2016 | 10:00am – 4:30pm
Endorsements and Grading
Non-Partisan candidates will receive either a positive (thumbs up) or negative (thumbs down) endorsement from us. Partisan Candidates will receive a grade of 1 to 5 stars 1 star being not very Libertarian and 5 stars being very good in regards to their position on issues important to Libertarians.
2016 Libertarian Voters Guide
The results of our Speed Dating events will be published in our 2016 Libertarian Voters. The 2016 Libertarian Voter Guide will be disseminated through all available marketing channels to ensure Nevada voters are aware of our positions and bring additional awareness to each of the Candidates.
- In 2014, our Voter guide received over 40,000 downloads, was shared heavily on social media and other organizations used Voter Guide as a resource for their candidate endorsements and recommendations.
