Vice presidential delegate count[edit]

Prior to vice presidential balloting, Marc Allan Feldman endorsed Gary Johnson's running mate William Weld, and Austin Petersen endorsed Alicia Dearn. Judd Weiss, who John McAfee had selected as his running mate, withdrew his name from consideration and endorsed William Coley, who had been Darryl Perry's running mate. Consequently, McAfee endorsed Derrick Grayson, who had received a write-in vote in each round of the presidential contest but had not campaigned for either the presidency or vice presidency prior to the convention.

Libertarian National Convention Vice Presidential vote, 2016 – 1st Ballot[6]
Candidate First Ballot Percentage
William Weld 426 49.0%
Larry Sharpe 264 30.4%
Mary Ruwart 93 10.7%
Derrick Grayson 48 5.5%
Alicia Dearn 29 3.3%
None of the above 6 0.7%
Daniel Hogan (Write-in) 1 0.1%
Austin Petersen (Write-in) 1 0.1%
Gary Johnson (Write-in) 1 0.1%
Totals 869 100%

No candidate achieved the majority on the first ballot, so there was a second ballot vote. Due to finishing last of the five nominated candidates, Dearn was excluded from the second ballot. Dearn then endorsed Weld. Additionally, both Coley and Grayson withdrew their names and endorsed Sharpe. However, Grayson withdrew his candidacy after the second ballots had been handed out, and therefore his name remained on the ballot as a valid candidate.

Libertarian National Convention Vice Presidential vote, 2016 – 2nd Ballot[6]
Candidate Second Ballot Percentage
William Weld 441 50.6%
Larry Sharpe 409 46.9%
None of the above 12 1.4%
Derrick Grayson 9 1.0%
Mary Ruwart (Write-in) 1 0.1%
Totals 872 100%

Incidents[edit]

  • On May 29, candidate for Chairman of the LNC James Weeks took stage and stripped down to a thong, saying "I thought we could use a little bit of fun." He danced on the stage before announcing the suspension of his bid for chairperson. He was booed loudly by the delegates and removed from the convention.[8] The incident was streamed live on C-SPAN. This took place during the tabulation of votes on the second ballot for Vice President, and many delegates attempted to make a motion to expel Weeks from the party. This was cut short when chairman Nicholas Sarwark moved to set the matter aside and announce the results of the Vice Presidential nomination. Weeks was later expelled from the Libertarian Party of Michigan, which disavowed all support for his candidacy for county Sheriff.[9]
  • After losing the nomination to Gary Johnson, Austin Petersen endorsed the nominee and gave him a replica of George Washington's gun. Several delegates attending the convention later reported seeing Gary Johnson, the party's nominee, tossing the gift in the garbage. It was returned to Petersen by a family that attended the convention.[10] A spokesman for the campaign apologized on behalf of Gov. Johnson, and explained the frustration arose from Petersen handing Johnson the replica before immediately launching into an attack on Johnson's endorsement of Weld for Vice President. Petersen has expressed a desire to move past the incident, encouraging his supporters to do the same, and confirmed that his endorsement of Johnson for the general election remains unchanged.[11]
