Episode 1: How To Run For Office
Speaking of Liberty Episode 1: Run for General Assembly Why should you run?Choice - 53 offices went unopposed in the general election 2016 and 56 in 2012, giving voters no choice and no reason to vote or get engaged with the democratic process. In districts without choice, voter turnout is even lower because the result is the same no matter what. These districts are screaming for a Libertarian candidate to step in and be the alternative to what everyone assumes will happen.
