Historic Overview

In 1930, members of the Prohibition Party in New York state organized the "Law Preservation Party". The LPP effectively replaced the Prohibition Party and was intended to expand the base of the party. However, organizing the new party actually undermined the support of the earlier Prohibition Party in New York. In 1934, the LPP failed to gain the requisite 25,000 votes for Governor, and on 12/11/1934 the state board of canvassers ruled that the LPP had lost its ballot status.
