The primaries are over, and we are officially into the general election season.

If you pulled a ballot in the August election, you might have noticed there were not two, but three, parties on the primary ballot this year: Republican, Democrat, and Libertarian.

Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Bill Gelineaujoined Stateside to talk about what he wants his campaign to accomplish.

“So I guess what I’m looking for is the opportunity to be the third voice at the table that the Libertarians have earned as a result of being a major party. And in doing so, we’re going to give Michigan voters a true choice,” Gelineau said.

Listen above to hear what rank-choice voting is and why Gelineau thinks it would help third party candidates be competitive, as well as what sets Libertarians apart from Democrats and the GOP.
