Independent Voter Project

The Independent Voter Project is the founding member of, a coalition that is bringing together organizations from across the political spectrum for the exclusive purpose of ending party control of our elections and protecting the voting rights of the individual voter.

“Every elected representative’s first obligation should be to people … not to political parties.” -

IVN is committed to the belief that democracy functions best when the most people participate. Today’s political climate discourages such a participatory democracy. This is evidenced by the fact that current congressional approval rating is just over 10%. Trust in the news media is under 40%. And, most importantly, voters are fleeing the parties in record numbers, with 40% of Americans self-identified as independent voters.

The Independent Voter Project (IVP) hosts conferences and summits attended by elected officials, industry leaders, and top experts to discuss the important policy considerations we face today in a non-partisan manner.
