The 2020 National Libertarian Party Platform Committee met beginning February 2020. The LNC had previously appointed Caryn Ann Harlos as interim chair in a close vote between Caryn Ann and Laura Ebke. Chair Nicholas Sarwark cast the deciding vote in favor of Caryn Ann. Due to issues surrounding credentialing and the remote delegates at the National Convention 2020 taking up an entire day, the platform committee proposals were never heard.

Permanent Chair and Secretary

Laura Ebke, Caryn Ann Harlos, and Omar Receuro were nominated for committee chair. Harlos won with 12 votes. Ebke received 5 votes, and Receuro did not receive any votes for chair but was elected as committee secretary with 8 votes running against Spencer Dias who received 2 votes. Harlos was previously the Platform Committee 2018 committee chair, and her handling of that committee was a large factor in the election. Ebke volunteered to fill in if ever needed which was gratefully accepted.


The committee voted to forgo a mid-term in-person meeting.
