The LPO is managed by five divisions: Political, Field Development, Communications, Information Technology, and Finance. Each division focuses on their own area of expertise, while providing support to other divisions and the Executive and Central committees.
This team is focused on recruiting and electing statewide candidates, but will support local candidates where no county party or organization exists. They will also support the Libertarian Party's presidential nominees. Ballot access for the LPO is also a priority, along with promoting the LPO's position on ballot issues when directed to do so by the LPO Executive Committee. For more information, leave us feedback.

Field Development Division
Field Development is focused on the creation and support of LPO county Affiliates and Development Groups, promoting the growth of present and future LPO members. We will support County organizations, candidates and will defend liberty on as many local issues as possible. Of course, we represent the grass-roots support of all Libertarian state and national candidates. We strive to connect with all fellow Libertarians through community outreach, petitioning, campaigning, speaking engagements as well as local social events to connect and develop with other liberty-minded people of all walks of life.

The LPO Constitution is our primary controlling document. It can be changed or amended only by votes of the delegation at our state convention.
Our Bylaws are the "operating rules" that the major committees of the party must follow during the day-to-day operations of the party. These may be changed by a vote of the Central Committee.
Meeting minutes of all Executive Committee meetings of the Libertarian Party of Ohio are public record and are made available in the interest of transparency.
