ONE MILLION voters are locked out of Pennsylvania primaries

May 19, 2015 is primary day in Pennsylvania, but more than ONE MILLION independent voters are barred from participating in today's election. That's because Pennsylvania uses a closed primary system, meaning only those registered with the two major parties are permitted to vote in the primary elections.

Because of partisanship and gerrymandered districts, most elections are decided in the primary, AND these elections are paid for using taxpayer funds! This is unfair and undemocratic! Share this video and sign up to get involved to help us open the primaries in Pennsylvania.
