Latest Convention News

Hey there Bexar County Libertarians! We just wanted to provide a general update regarding the state and national conventions to keep y’all up to speed:

State Convention
This has been rescheduled to July 31 – August 02. You’ll want to make appropriate adjustments to your travel plans if you plan to attend. For more information, please visit the official convention website:

Libertarian State Convention

National Convention
The national committee has officially voted to delay the convention; the convention will no longer be occurring in May. A new date has not been set but the convention will be held before July 15th.

The official website has not yet been updated with this information, but I would still recommend bookmarking it if you plan to attend, since more information should be posted on it soon:

Libertarian National Convention

SLEC Meeting Regarding National Delegation

SLEC has announced the below meeting. Anyone interested in being a delegate to the National Convention should attend this meeting, if possible, as well as fill out the National Delegate interest form.

By LNC rule, The Libertarian Party of Texas is required to select at least one delegate at least 30 days prior to our national nominating convention, which is scheduled for May 22nd. Due to the Coronavirus outbreak and current social distancing measures, LPTexas was forced to postpone our state convention which was previously scheduled for April 18.

However, because our national convention is still scheduled for May 22nd, we must submit at least one delegate by April 22nd. Our LPTexas rules state that SLEC (State Libertarian Executive Committee) can select our delegates to our national convention, but that such a vote must be held at an open meeting. SLEC will choose the remainder of our delegates at a later time, which may be at an in person event or online.

Please join us on WebEx on Thursday Night, April 16th at 8:00pm Central to view the meeting.

State Convention To Be Rescheduled

We can move our convention dates! After repeated requests to the Office of the Texas Secretary of State and the Office of the Governor, the Governor has suspended Texas election code 181.061 which required our LPTexas convention to be held on April 18th of this year.

The Convention Committee and SLEC are already working on setting new dates. More details to come soon!

District Conventions and COVID-19

Please note that, due to the concerns and closures caused by COVID-19, all San Antonio libraries are closed for the time being. We will still open the conventions at Brookhollow Library. We are legally required to hold conventions at the location we originally posted.

If the weather cooperates we can complete the conventions outside of the library, however we are planning for a second location which we can reconvene to if necessary. We will update information here as soon as there is any news.
