After several years without official LP presence, El Paso county reorganized and became LPCO’s biggest County Affiliate in 2013. We have used our time wisely. In the first year Libertarian voter registration in El Paso County rose by 60%! 2016 is an incredibly exciting time – registrations are through the roof, many Libertarians are on the ballot, and volunteers are out in force spreading the word about liberty!
December 11, 2016 was the 45th Birthday of the Libertarian Party, which was officially founded right here in El Paso County, in the Colorado Springs home of Luke Zell in 1971.
LPEPC has done several community outreach events, including PrideFest Colorado Springs, a Black Forest Fire Fundraiser, helping a neighbor who had a contaminated well after the fires, Gun Shows, and we volunteer at the Bob Telmosse Christmas Giveaway every year. There are several community outreach volunteer opportunities planned for the future as well. The Libertarian Party of El Paso County supports charities that receive little to no government assistance in order to support “Less Government, More Freedom.” We are always in need of volunteers to help us serve our community.
We have a fun and informative member meeting on the Third Thursday of every month. We have had policy forums on important issues facing the voters. We also take care of business with monthly Board Meetings and Annual Meetings.
We have testified at City Council meetings. Alliances have been formed with liberty minded groups in the area and we continue to work with like minded organizations.
