As per its namesake, the Libertarian Party, our Champaign County Libertarians (CCLP) chapter promotes the principles of individual liberty applied across all sectors of local government. Freedom and autonomy for every person to live the life of their choosing should be honored, with respect to that person affording the same freedoms to every other person. These freedoms shall not be infringed.

As the largest third party (and the only principled party) in state and national politics, the Libertarian Party strives to increase the freedom of each person through policies that promote individual equality and decrease governmental intervention into private affairs. The CCLP works toward these goals, in part, by targeting specific issues in municipal and county governance across Champaign County.


  • Equalizing treatment of Champaign County residents in both criminal and civil matters regardless of individual status
  • Balancing, and subsequently reducing, local budget (and taxes) by eliminating wasteful spending via:
    • Modernizing county technical infrastructure
      Auditing and eliminating ineffectual programs
    • Maximizing the freedom of Champaign County residents
  • Promoting peace, tolerance, and prosperity of every resident
  • Decriminalizing (legalizing) marijuana (drug) use within Champaign County
  • Liberating non-violent criminal offenders
  • Reducing barriers for prosperity for new and existing businesses while respecting individuals’ liberties
  • Increasing transparency in the local political process

CCLP seeks to form coalitions with the Champaign County Democratic and Republican parties on these policy issues in the pursuit of creating a freer society.
