Unrig It 2020

Incoming Chairs of the DNC & RNC: Open the Primaries, NOW!

One thing united American voters this election year: the growing frustration with a political system that is broken, rigged, unfair – choose your favorite adjective.

As a country, we need a new way forward, one that unites Americans with different beliefs and backgrounds. We need an electoral system that makes that possible.

FACT

26.3 million independent voters were barred from participating in the Presidential Primary this year, and millions more registered Democrats and Republicans were prevented from voting for the candidate of their choice because of a patchwork of restrictive registration rules. From New York to Arizona, voters across the country -- whose tax dollars fund the primary process -- were denied the right to fully participate. It’s not hard to understand why voter turnout has hit a 20-year low and 70% of all Americans now support open primaries.

FACT

As incoming Chairpersons of the Democratic and Republican Parties, you have a unique opportunity to influence how the presidential primaries are conducted in 2020. The parties have been given the power by the Supreme Court to determine how to conduct their primaries. We encourage you to conduct open primaries in all 50 states in 2020. Let all the American people speak.

Both of your predecessors opposed open primaries. We ask you to re-examine this posture and take such steps as are necessary to adopt rules that require all state party organizations to conduct open primaries in 2020. The country will thank you.

That’s it? just ask them to do it? Open Primaries is a great idea. No chance that the Republicans or Democrats will do this.

The Independent Party of Oregon just did this for the first time in 2016. An Open Primary and the republican candidate got a double nomination in a state senate race by way of write ins.

This wasn’t typical but Oregon is addressing this problem in various ways. A good step in the right direction at the very least. :D

Let's not forget how we got to this disgusting Presidency: via rigged, voter-suppression Primaries. Especially the Democrats. Please sign and join this effort.

Sign the petition: Unrig it 2020 by demanding Open Primaries in every state. Until all voters including independents, who now make up 43% or all voters, more than either of the major parties, we can hardly call ourselves a democracy.

Sign the petition: Unrig it 2020 Not voting or not allowed to Vote is a miscarriage of justice in the worst way. Hope we can correct it by 2020. On 2018 we can vote for a change in Congress which can lead to a more honest result in 2020
