The Libertarian Party of Florida, or LPF, is the Florida state affiliate of the Libertarian Party (United States).

Founded in 1970, the LPF works in community education, lobbying, direct popular initiatives, and coalitions such as with Campaign for Liberty and Tea Party groups with increasing progress and media notice on electoral reform and other issues. In addition since 2001 it has worked increasingly on placing people in appointive and elected offices with a focus on the local level. According to its website (2008) its number of people in appointed and elected public office hovers around 40, and (as of 2010) has elected 2 mayors.

The LPF is the third largest political party in the state of Florida, with approximately 18,000 registered voters as of 2011. In 2010, the LPF had a state-wide candidate on the ballot for the first time with Alexander Snitker for U.S. Senate.

In the 2012 Election, Libertarian candidates include Calen Fretts for Florida's First U.S. Congressional District, and Peter Richter and Jonathan Loesche for Florida House of Representatives. The LPF also has several candidates for county and municipal races statewide.
