Running for secretary of state is Roland Riemers, who has made multiple runs for office earlier. He is owner of Affordable Apartments, LLC in Grand Forks and the chairman of the North Dakota Libertarian Party.

He ran for governor twice, in 2004 and 2012. In the 2004 race, he ran as an Independent.

In 2012, improper paperwork filing by his running mate prompted his removal from the ballot on the Libertarian Party ticket. He later re-entered the race as an Independent.

He ran as an Independent in 2006 for the U.S. Senate, and later ran for Grand Forks County sheriff in 2010.

Fargo resident Anthony Mangnall is running for North Dakota tax commissioner. He’s a producer for Rush Street Productions in Fargo.

The party is still seeking candidates for attorney general, agriculture commissioner and the two Public Service Commission seats up for election.
