Libertarian Party Now Listed on DC Voter Registration Forms

Sick of the government meddling in every last detail of your life? Wish that D.C. took a more isolationist stance toward the rest of the country? Do restaurant health inspections feel like an arbitrary burden?

Well, now you can let the D.C. Board of Elections know, because the newest revision to the District's voter registration form includes the Libertarian Party as one of the printed choices. Though they have never held elected office in the District, the Libertarians finally achieved major-party status last year when Bruce Majors, a challenger to Democratic Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton, carried enough votes to secure formal recognition for their party organization.

    Thanks for the article.

    I see a correction: Libertarians have held over 40 elected and appointive offices in Washington DC, not 'vener held office' as the article claims.
