The Libertarian Party is now an officially recognized political group in Oklahoma.  

Libertarians submitted 42,182 signatures from a petition drive to become a formal political party in Oklahoma. The State Election Board certified about 30,500, and Board Secretary Paul Ziriax says that’s more than enough.

“That means that the Libertarians can now run candidates for office. Oklahomans can register to vote Libertarian. It also means that the Libertarian Party will receive a ballot line for president and vice president in November’s general election,” Ziriax said.

Oklahomans who want to cast a ballot in the Nov. 4 general election have until Friday to register to vote.

State Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax reminded potential voters of the upcoming deadline, noting there are numerous high-profile races for state and federal offices, as well as many local elections.
