The Montana Libertarian Party is celebrating. Members will be able to nominate their candidate for the U.S. Congressional Special Election on the day of the party’s historic first-ever convention.
A recent ruling by the Secretary of State confirms that the deadline for party nominee filings will be Monday, March 13 at 5 p.m. Earlier communications from the SoS placed the deadline on the preceding Friday, cutting the legal filing date short by one day because of the weekend.
“For a third party, still mourning the loss of its standard bearer, Mike Fellows, and organizing its first ever state convention, it was important for us to hold our convention and candidate nomination at the same time,” said, Ron Vandevender, chair of the Montana Libertarian Party. “We are pleased that the Secretary of State’s Office chose to show this respect for Montana law and Montana voters.”
The Montana Libertarian Party will hold its first convention on Saturday, March 11, in Helena beginning at 11 a.m. at the Fraternal Order of Eagles. Everyone is welcome. The Party will be ratifying an amended constitution, listening to and voting on candidates to replace Rep. Ryan Zinke, and hearing from National Libertarian Party Region One Director Caryn Ann Harlos about the future of the Party.
