  2. It's Not Too Late to Become a National Convention Delegate — by Bill Hall

    The 2008 Libertarian Party National Convention will be held in Denver, Colorado over Memorial Day weekend, from May 22 to May 26, 2008. During the convention, nearly 1,000 delegates from around the nation will gather to select the Libertarian Party's Presidential and Vice Presidential nominees. Recently, Libertarian activist and author Mary Ruwart announced her candidacy for the Presidential nomination, as did former US Senator Mike Gravel from Alaska. Former Congressman Bob Barr recently announced he is forming an exploratory committee and may also join the
    crowded field of 15 announced candidates. In addition, delegates will elect new national LP officers and debate possible changes to the national Platform and Bylaws. If you haven't attended a National Convention in the past, be
    prepared for an incredibly exciting event, packed into a convention hall with a thousand exuberant Libertarians meeting to chart the Libertarian Party's future course and launch its 2008 political campaign. Outside the Convention hall you'll have the opportunity to schmooze and party
    with delegates and others from all across the country, and meet our prospective Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates and national LP leaders personally. Whether or not you want to serve as a voting delegate at the Convention, this is a great opportunity to have some fun.
