1996 Elections in Pennsylvania

The Libertarian Party of Pennsylvania ran the following candidates for office in the November 1996 elections:

Burke's 5,000 vote showing for Congress was many times the margin of victory of ten votes. The Democractic loser called for a recount.

The state party needed 2% in a statewide race to retain "minor party" status, which it did. Minor party status allows voters to register in the party, but petitioning is still required to get on the ballot.
