Campaigns for Primary Reform
We’re working with primary reform activists in cities and states across the country to fight for the right of every voter to vote in every public election and to advocate for open, nonpartisan primary election systems.
We’re looking for supporters, activists & spokespeople to join us –if you’re interested in getting involved in your state please send an email to Jeremy Gruber, OP Senior VP at email@example.com
ACTIVE CAMPAIGNS IN 2022
Earlier this year All Oregon Votes team collected the initial slate of signatures needed for the “Free and Equal Elections” initiative, a groundbreaking proposed constitutional amendment calling for all voters to be free to vote in every publicly funded election. The initiative was validated by Oregon’s Elections Division and given a certified ballot title by the OR Attorney General. In early May, the Democratic Party affiliated group Our Oregon filed an appeal with the Oregon Supreme Court to challenge the ballot title but we’ve recently received news that the Oregon State Supreme Court rejected the appeal and approved the ballot language!
The initiative won’t make the ballot in 2022 unfortunately, but the ballot language is now fully vetted by the courts and the All Oregon Votes team is already building for a 2024 campaign.
Open Primaries PA has launched a legislative campaign (in both the Senate and the House) to allow independent voters in the state the right to vote in Republican and Democratic primary elections. Both pieces of legislation aim to address the voter suppression currently happening in the state and enfranchise the 1.2 million Pennsylvanians currently locked out of the process.
