Help Stop The Funding Of Private Party Primaries With Our Public Tax Dollars!
No Taxation Without Representation
In 2012 taxpayers paid over $100 million for party conventions, plus another $400 million to fund private primary elections. You pay for these private party expenses even if you aren't allowed to vote!
To the Major Parties, You Don't Matter
Over 90% of elections are decided during primaries, but because of restrictive elections laws only 10% of people participate. You should not have to join a party to exercise your right to vote.
Parties Monopolized Control of Elections
Both parties have abused the legal system to keep non-partisan voters from participating in primary elections. Party-appointed judges have shaped court precedent to protect party interests.
How Do You Take Back Control?
IVP, on behalf of New Jersey voters from across the political spectrum, has filed a lawsuit currently in the Federal Third Circuit Court of appeals defending the fundamental right to a meaningful vote.
