Oklahoma Libertarian Party Postpones State Convention Due to COVID-19 Pandemic.
Oklahoma City— The Oklahoma Libertarian Party State Executive Committee held an emergency meeting to discuss the COVID-19 crisis and their upcoming State Convention that was to be held next weekend in Tulsa.
In light of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, the OKLP has decided to postpone its state convention. In a statement, State Chairman Chad Williams said, “As the party with a core principle of doing no harm to others, we have decided that it is in the best interest of our delegates and guests that we postpone our convention until the threats of infection have subsided.”
Because the Libertarian Party selects its candidates for President and Vice President of the United States at convention, the OKLP will be holding a public meeting to choose delegates to the national convention on April 18. All qualified Libertarians in the state interested in becoming delegates are encouraged to reach out to the State Executive Committee.
