Jacob and Chad discuss the lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court in Newark, New Jersey.

Over 47% of New Jersey voters choose not to register with a political party and 42% of American voters now self-identify as Independent or unaffiliated voters, yet most states have primary systems that give political parties special access to the voting franchise and penalize voters who do not wish to join a political party

The legal strategy is asserting that every voter should have an equal and meaningful vote at every stage of the state-funded election process, regardless of their party affiliation or non-affiliation.

The complaint claims, “By denying over 2.6 million New Jersey voters the right to cast a vote in the primary election, the State has disenfranchised nearly half of its electorate, and thereby, given private political parties and partisan voters a greater and unequal access to the voting franchise.  As a result, New Jersey’s elections are not free, not equal, and not constitutional for the reasons demonstrated herein.”
