Unrig It 2020

DNC Chair Tom Perez & RNC Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel: 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 new 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.

Sign the petition: Unrig it 2020 This may possibly be the only answer to honest, fair elections in the U.S. If the DNC hadn't pulled the crap they pulled during the primaries, we'd have Bernie Sanders as our president, instead of the squatter that's sitting in the WH now.

We need to stop allowing corporatism to control our elections. Lets have open primaries so "We the People" may choose who runs.

Not being able to vote freely during the Presidential primaries limits our choices. Sign the petition: Unrig it 2020
