The Libertarian Party of Louisiana says it has hit a milestone, reaching 10,000 registered voters in the state.

That’s a tiny sliver of Louisiana’s 2.9 million voters, but Libertarian leaders take it as a sign that people are growing more dissatisfied with the current two-party system and are looking for new options.

Libertarian candidates are showing up on more ballots as well, with candidates registered for the U.S. Senate race and in five of the state’s six House races.

Louisiana’s Senate race has been identified nationally as one that could ultimately determine whether Democrats maintain control of the U.S. Senate.

There is about one week left to register to vote in the November election. October 6 is the last day.

On November 4, Louisianans will choose Senator Mary Landrieu or one of her Republican opponents, who include Baton Rouge Representative Bill Cassidy and Tea Party-backed Rob Maness, of Madisonville.
