Presidential and vice presidential nominations[edit]

Candidates seeking to win the Libertarian Party nominations either for president or vice president must gather thirty "tokens", or supporting delegates, and their votes in order to be put onto the actual nominating ballot. However, that still doesn't prevent write-in votes when the balloting is being held.
