The Libertarian Party of Los Angeles County (LPLAC) is a county organization of the Libertarian Party of California.


Los Angeles County is the largest county in the United States by population, with more than 10 million residents, and since the earliest days of the Libertarian Party there have been multiple local organizations within it organized geographically, such as:

  • San Fernando Valley
  • West Los Angeles
  • Pasadena/Glendale
  • Central/Hollywood
  • Southeast Los Angeles
  • South Bay
  • East San Gabriel Valley
  • Antelope Valley

Note that the City of Los Angeles is a distinct entity within Los Angeles County (cf. San Francisco, which is a combined City and County). The City of Los Angeles accounts for less than half the population of the county, and there are more than 80 other municipalities within the county.

Region Numbers

When the Libertarian Party of California was organized into numbered regions, various parts of Los Angeles County were treated as separate regions, with the same status as regions elsewhere in the state that covered one county or multiple counties. LPLAC served as an umbrella organization to coordinate these regions at the county level, but was not a region itself.

As of 2023, these numbers are still used internally by LPLAC. Linked below are articles corresponding to when these were their own regional organizations.

  • 61 - San Fernando Valley
  • 62 - West Los Angeles
  • 63 - Foothills/Pasadena
  • 64 - Central Los Angeles
  • 65 - Southeast Los Angeles
  • 66 - South Bay
  • 67 - East San Gabriel Valley
  • 68 - Antelope Valley


  • Not all of these regions existed for the entire time that this numbering system was in use.
  • As a county, Los Angeles would have had the number 19, but LPLAC was not itself a region at that time so that number was not used.

In the earlier 20-region numbering system, the numbers were as follows:

  • 11 - San Fernando Valley
  • 12 - West Los Angeles
  • 13 - San Gabriel Valley
  • 14 - Los Angeles
  • 15 - East Los Angeles
  • 16 - South Bay
  • 17 - Southeast Los Angeles
