 How do we define an Elected libertarian?

This list includes elected officials nationwide who have demonstrated that they are in general agreement with libertarian principles, have self-identified themselves as "libertarians" and/or are affiliated or friendly with libertarian groups such as the Republican Liberty Caucus, Americans for Limited Government, Americans for Tax Reform, Cato Institute, Club for Growth or the Libertarian Party. High priority is placed on whether an elected official explicitly identifies themselves as a "libertarian," or attends (speaks at), an explicitly libertarian function such as a Libertarian Party, Republican Liberty Caucus or Cato Institute convention or conference.  An elected officials scores on various indexes such as from the National Taxpayers Union, and most especially the RLC's Liberty Index, also plays a large role in designation as an "elected libertarian."
