The Libertarian Party of Michigan will be holding its Spring State Convention on Saturday, March 14th, 2020 at the Eberhard Center at Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids. The primary purpose of this convention will be to select delegates to the Libertarian National Convention in Austin Texas, where the party will select its 2020 Presidential candidate.
Because this convention will occur just two months before our national convention, we expect several presidential candidates to attend. The convention will also have a luncheon and will be followed by our annual Defender of Liberty Awards banquet. Please note that candidates for public office will not be selected at this convention. We will be holding a second candidate nominating convention in July.
More details and registration information will be made available as they develop. In order to be a voting delegate to the spring state convention, you will have to be selected by one of our affiliates or unaffiliated regions. These county conventions and region caucuses are expected to be held between February and early March.
You do not need to be present at the Grand Rapids convention to be selected as a national convention delegate. Please email state party Chair Greg Stempfle at firstname.lastname@example.org and Secretary Wendi Parker at email@example.com if you would like to have your name placed into nomination.
