First recognized by the State Board of Elections in April 1999, the Libertarian Party of Maryland lost its official party status in November 2002. On June 30, 2004, the Party was recertified by the State Board of Elections, and held its designation until December 2010.
The Party remained active while undertaking a petition process to regain ballot access. The State Board of Elections, however, determined in March 2011 that many of the signatures submitted by the Party were invalid and recertification was denied. The Party filed suit and retained its recognition until May 2012 when the Court of Appeals ruled in favor of the State Board of Elections (Court of Appeals, Maryland State Board of Elections v. Libertarian Party of Maryland, et. al., no. 79-11, May 21, 2012). New petitions were filed with the Board, which found, on August 27, 2012, that enough valid petition signatures had been collected for the Party to be placed on the November 2012 ballot.
The Party is governed by the State Central Committee. Membership in the Committee is open to all dues-paying, registered party members who wish to serve. From this committee, the Executive Board is chosen and officers are selected at its annual spring meeting.
