Having others help spread the message of liberty whether for my campaign or for the Libertarian party in general would be an assest. You can help by passing out flyers, placing yard signs, or setting up small gatherings. The small gatherings are ideal for candidates to meet potential voters and even donors as well as just meet other people to share thoughts and ideas.
