Independent Voter Project

IVP's Legal Strategy

The Independent Voter Project is the founding member of a state-by-state legal strategy that brings together a coalition of organizations from across the political spectrum for the exclusive purpose of protecting the voting rights of the individual voter to participate fully and equally at all important stages of the election process.

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

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.

IVP Chapter Program

IVP Chapters are designed to engage young independent-minded leaders who will promote the basic principle that our elected officials should represent people first, not 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.
