Libertarian Association of Massachusetts Regains Official Party Status

November 14, 2022

The Libertarian Association of Massachusetts is back to having official party status in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

The party is once again eligible to hold statewide primaries as a result of its performance in the November 2022 general election.

To get official party status, a party must run a candidate statewide who gets at least 3 percent of the vote.

The Libertarian Association of Massachusetts did it. Cristina Crawford, the party’s nominee for state Treasurer, got 23.4 percent of the vote against incumbent Democrat Deb Goldberg, who got 76.6 percent of the vote, according to The New York Times.

One major reason why Crawford got so much support in the race is that the Republican Party did not field a candidate for the position this year.

The Libertarian Party lost its official party status in 2020 after maintaining it in the 2016 and 2018 elections.
