The Libertarian Party of Kansas (LPKS) is the Kansas affiliate of the Libertarian Party. Since 2009 the Libertarian Party of Kansas has been the fastest growing political party in the state of Kansas. The LPKS earned full ballot access in 1993, with Libertarian candidates appearing on every statewide general election ballot since then.
In 2010 the party pursued major party status which would have given them the same primary ballot access enjoyed by the Republican and Democratic parties. To achieve major party status, their candidate for Governor of Kansas, Andrew Gray, needed to receive 5% or more of the statewide vote in the general election, but failed to do so.
The position of State Chair is elected every two years at the state convention of the Libertarian Party of Kansas. The current chair is Al Terwelp; past Chairs include Steven Rosile, Rob Hodgkinson, and Andrew Gray.
