Missouri voters will see candidates for three political parties on the November ballot. Republican and Democrat candidates are up for all the statewide positions,but Missouri’s third official party – the Libertarians – will be there, as well. Greg Tlapek, the Executive Director of the Missouri Libertarian Party, says his party has enjoyed automatic access to the ballot since 1992, because it has managed to win at least 2 percent of the vote in at least one statewide race in every election.Of the 555 candidates who have filed to run for Missouri’s state or federal offices, 35 are Libertarians. In addition to all the statewide offices the Libertarians are contesting, the party has also entered candidates in all Congressional districts, a handful of State Senate races, and a dozen Missouri House elections.
