The Libertarian Party has been a ballot qualified political party in Indiana since 1994. In 2010, Libertarian secretary of state candidate Mike Wherry earned 6 percent of the vote in the general election—far surpassing the minimum threshold required for instant ballot clearance in Indiana. According to Indiana election laws, if a party's candidate for the Indiana Secretary of State race, specifically, garners at least 2 percent of the vote in the general election, that party can bypass the petition stage otherwise necessary for obtaining representation on the ballot for the subsequent four years. This access applies to all races held within the state during such a four year period.
Tatgenhorst is a veteran of the U.S. Army and works as an IT executive.
