Partisan politics is not working for the American people. Congress has an abysmal approval rating and cannot legislate, much less innovate. We need new ways to conduct our political and civic life, but the political parties continue to assert their control over our voting and governing processes. The parties view gridlock as the solution, not the problem!
Endorse the open primaries movement and be a part of a growing coalition of diverse Americans working to educate and organize voters in all 50 states.

I’ve been a proponent to run-off or two-round elections for many years and believe switching to this system for all elections will remove a practice that disenfranchises many voters and will reduce the affect of two largest political parties on the future of our Nation.
Citizenship, not membership in a political party, is the sole Constitutional qualification for eligibility to cast a ballot, and this is as true of primary elections as it is of general/runoff elections.
I am fortunate to live in a state which currently has open primary elections, which have been functioning beautifully for several years. Now I need the right to vote for any candidate in the Presidential primaries to make my freedom complete.
