Urge Senator Schumer to stand up for election reform in New York
Open Primaries and the Independence Party of New York City have partnered to urge U.S. Senator Charles Schumer to play a leadership role in the growing movement to enact open primaries and empower independent voters.
Senator Schumer has already stood up for this reform in the New York Times, and now we want him to do something about it. Everyone knows that New York politics is corrupt.
Enacting Top Two nonpartisan primaries in New York and other states would not be a cure all, but it would give "we the people" more capacity to impact what goes on in Albany and Washington and allow independents — the fastest growing segment of the electorate — the capacity to fully participate.
Our goal is to get thousands of signatures on our petition by March 13th and we need your help and support to make this happen.
