How Libertarians Are Voting

Back in 2008, Reason surveyed its contributors and fellow travelers about how they intended to vote, and quite a few said they would pull the switch for Barack Obama over libertarian candidate Bob Barr. Several said they weren’t voting and only a few mentioned John McCain. This year Reason has done it again, and the results are far more uniform. Neither President Obama nor Governor Romney is collecting any of Reason‘s votes. Those that vote (and many don’t) are all going with libertarian candidate Gary Johnson.

UPDATE: I should probably note that some libertarians believe that how one should vote depends on where one lives. Reason board member Manny Klausner, for instance, says he’s enthusiastically voting for Gary Johnson but that he’s also urging his friends who live in battleground states to support Romney if the election looks like it will be close.
