Libertarians Danny Bedwell, running for U.S. Representative in Mississippi in the First Congressional District, and Bruce Majors, running for Mayor of Washington, D.C., will specify their plans for the federal government and the municipal government to cut income taxes, create jobs, and reduce government interference in our lives.
DC "lost" 65,000, voters in the past year, according to the Board of Election'a website. While 20 or so new Libertarians register every month, during the past 14 months, Democrats dropped from 376,000 to 337,000, Republicans dropped from 31,000 to 27,000, and "No Party" dropped from 87,000 to 76,000, with the total dropping from 501,000 to 446,000. D.C. seems to have cleaned the voter roles in June 2013, since tens of thousands of Democrats (and 4 Libertarians) disappeared that month.

Did DC actually clean the voter rolls?

Don’t even think about hitting the pause or stop button. D.C. Council member Muriel Bowser (Ward 4) has secured the Democratic Party nomination, but the race for mayor is far from over. The next phase of the contest is sure to be tough and interesting.
Libertarian Bruce Majors has entered the ring. But unless another high-profile challenger arrives, the city will be focused on the battle between Bowser and heavyweight independent D.C. Council member David Catania (At Large). In a recent Post poll looking at a possible race between the two, 56 percent of voters supported Bowser and 23 percent supported Catania.
Currently DC Libertarian registration is growing by approximately 10% monthly. There was an initial jump after December 2012 when it finally became legal to register as a Libertarian, followed by a plateau until new registration forms were finally printed in March 2013 and then made available in public libraries and at the Department of Motor Vehicles (previously you would have had to have been already registered to vote, and then changed your party affiliation on-line). Registrations then picked up again when we announced candidates who would be on the ballot.
