The Libertarian Party of Nebraska is the Nebraska affiliate of the Libertarian Party. The state chair is Scott Zimmerman.

The Libertarian Party of Nebraska submitted petitions to the Secretary of State on August 2, 2010, requesting certification as political party. These petitions contained approximately 8,000 signatures. The Libertarian Party was certified by the Secretary of State's office on August 12, 2010. The LP of Nebraska's candidate for Auditor of Public Accounts in 2010, Michele Sallach-Grace, won 20% of the vote and ensured the party will remain on the ballot through 2012. The party is the only recognized political party in Nebraska other than the Democratic and Republican Parties.

January 17, 2012 Senator Sullivan introduced LB1035 on behalf of the Libertarian Party. This bill changed the election cycle requirement. Up to this point, a political party had to obtain 5% of the vote in a state-wide race every election cycle or every two years to maintain ballot status. LB1035 changed this to every two election cycles or every four years. The bill was signed by the governor on April 10, 2012.

Several Libertarians ran for office in 2012:

  • Klaus Linder – La Vista Mayor
  • Micheal Knebel – Bellevue City Council
  • Jerry Kosch – Butler County Board of Supervisors
  • Gene Siadek – Papio Missouri NRD Board
  • Darrick J. Barclay – State Legislature

Libertarian Party of Nebraska motto: "Minimum Government, Maximum Freedom"
