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. Freedom to choose who you want is the ultimate freedom. It's why we formed the U.S.

Unrig it 2020. Remember when people were unhappy with primaries not being open? Well, here's a petition.

Arkansas has had open primaries for as long as I have been voting and that is 49 years now. It is the only fair way to run a primary.

Sign the petition: Unrig it 2020 There is an emergency in our voting cheat system. The PRIMARIES were both rigged. Clinton with super-delegates invented (why) and Drumpf with Manafort's capabilities on top of gerrymandering. Manafort has been hustling/lobbying votes for 40 years, both for dictators (foreign and U.S.) He is considered the King of Lobbying. We don't know WHAT is did.

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.
