The Kent County LPD is the home of the Libertarian Party in Kent County, Delaware.
With parts of Smyrna, Delaware in the north and parts of Milford, Delaware in the south, Kent County includes parts of eight Representative Districts and five Senate Districts in the State General Assembly, six county council "Levy Court" districts along with one at-large county representative, four county-wide row offices, four public school districts, and twenty municipalities.
Our mission is to advance the policies and principles of the Libertarian Party at all levels of our local government and into our communities by running candidates for public office; conducting outreach, education, and lobbying; providing a community for local Libertarians; and raising money to promote those efforts as well as similar efforts at the State and National level.
We currently hold monthly business meetings on the third Monday of each month at the McGlynn's Pub in Dover, beginning at 7p. We also organize or cosponsor other social and political events that will be announced here and on our mailing list.
Please sign up for our mailing list to be notified of upcoming events and pressing local issues, and consider making a one-time or recurring donation below.
Other information and important links can also be found to the right, with the latest news and updates posted below. Also join our State Party's Discord Server to start meeting other local Libertarians now!

Cannabis must be legalized. The War on Cannabis has been an unmitigated failure from its inception. On the thin pretext of protecting people from themselves, government has persecuted racial minorities, political dissidents, and even sick people seeking out the most effective treatments for their conditions and has only succeeded in demolishing respect for our Constitutionally guaranteed civil rights, our relationships with law enforcement personnel, and an economically vibrant and environmentally sustainable industry. Cannabis is more widely available and more widely used and more widely accepted than it was when this war began. It must be ended.
State governments around the country are slowly backing down from the War on Cannabis, but they are often doing so in a way that creates protected and restricted industries heavily taxed and regulated and limited to politically connected and favored individuals. This is better than continuing the failed war, but the ultimate goal must be a freed market that allows for home grow and the unrestricted transfer and sale of cannabis between adults.
