Ballot Access

The Libertarian Party of Nebraska submitted petitions to the Secretary of State on August 2, 2010, requesting certification as a political party. These petitions contained approximately 8,000 signatures. The Libertarian Party was certified by the Secretary of State's office on August 12, 2010. The LP of Nebraska's candidate for Auditor of Public Accounts in 2010, Michele Sallach-Grace, won 20% of the vote and ensured the party would remain on the ballot through 2012.

Several Libertarians ran for office in 2012:

  • Klaus Linder – La Vista Mayor
  • Micheal Knebel – Bellevue City Council
  • Jerry Kosch – Butler County Board of Supervisors
  • Gene Siadek – Papio Missouri NRD Board
  • Darrick J. Barclay – State Legislature
  • Ben Backus – Gering City Council

The Libertarian Party of Nebraska received more than the 5% needed in at least one statewide general election race in 2014 to keep the party on the ballot in Nebraska through at least 2018:

  • Governor - Mark Elworth, Jr. - 3.5% - 19,001 votes
  • Lt. Governor - Scott Zimmerman - 3.5% - 19,001 votes
  • Secretary of State - Ben Backus - 24.8% - 121,470 votes
  • State Treasurer- Michael Knebel - 5.3% - 28,009 votes

  • Fremont City Council - Michael Shallberg - 3rd Ward - 22.09% - 146 votes
  • Johnson County Treasurer - John Sterup - 14.9% - 250 votes
  • MUD Board (Outside Member) - Jonathan Corey Neurath - 7.74% - 682 votes

In 2017, Libertarian Senator Laura Ebke sponsored LB34 - a bill which gave ballot access to all parties with at least 10,000 voters without needing to collect signatures. The bill passed and became law without the signature of the Governor.

Several Libertarian Candidates ran for office in 2018;

Jim Schultz - US Senate - 24,606 Votes - 3.61%
Laura Ebke - Legislative District 32 - 6,243 Votes - 43.68%
