Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Kash Jackson and several other candidates in Illinois met with dozens of supporters to talk about the upcoming election Saturday at One in Quincy.
Jackson, a navy veteran, said candidates not running on either the Republican or Democrat ticket have had a limited voice.
He said 50% of residents in Illinois are not affiliated with a party and he believes those people are not being heard.
"A lot of people would identify Libertarians as being really independent, because we’re about limited government,’ said Jackson, "We’re about limited taxation, and we’re about protecting individual rights as long as those individual rights don’t infringe upon the rights of other people."
He is also big on getting rid of regulations for small business owners.
He believes there are too many hurdles to jump over for people with an idea.
The election is November 6th.
