Conventions

Libertarian Association of Massachusetts State Convention Election Returns

The Libertarian Association of Massachusetts recently conducted their State Convention, electing both delegates to the National Convention as well as new State Committee. The State Committee in turn elects the State Party leadership. In complying with Party rules, vote counting is to be handled and tabulated by an unbiased observer whom has no official membership with the Libertarian Party.

Filling that role, I assisted in their election process, and I took the liberty to list the convention tabulations here for public viewing.
