Happy Holidays from Open Primaries
Last week the Open Primaries team held our office warming and holiday party! Thank you to all our wonderful supporters for joining us at this very exciting event. We are very grateful for your support and are happy you agree that no American should be required to join a political party to exercise his or her right to vote. We have big plans for 2015.
Our focus will be to grow the open primaries coalition, educate voters in all fifty states and support efforts to enact open primaries via ballot referendum and/or legislation. We face an uphill battle. Any reform that takes power away from the parties and gives it back to the people is going to be vigorously fought against by those in power.
80% of Americans believe the political system is broken, and independent voters are the largest growing segment of the electorate. We must popularize open primaries and build networks of broad grassroots support. This is why your support is vital in enacting this much-needed change. Please sign up to receive email updates, volunteer, host an event, donate or let us know how you'd like to get involved.
Happy Holidays from everyone at Open Primaries!
