    Whereas: American voters are increasingly disenfranchised by a level of partisanship that unnecessarily divides voters.


    Whereas: Over 52% of millennials (aged 18-30) do not identify as members of a political party.


    Whereas: Over 95% of elections are ‘decided’ during the primary stage of the election.


    I agree that:


    (1) The right to vote is fundamental.

    (2) The right to vote cannot be abridged by a requirement to join any organization, including a political party.

    (3) Public funds should not be used to subsidize activities of political parties that abridge a voter’s right to meaningful participation in the election process.


    Therefore: I demand that our elected officials’ responsibility is to represent people, not political parties.


    By signing this petition, I voice the need for my local, state, and national governments to address the growing demands of Americans who feel disenfranchised by their system.


    Join the movement.

    The IVP San Diego Chapter Program is the first localized effort to create a student-run campaign embodying the principles and ideals of the Independent Voter Project, or IVP.

    IVP Chapter Programs are run by students who are frustrated with the partisan nature of our political process. Our mission is to foster a community of young independent-minded leaders who will promote the basic principle that our elected officials should represent people first, not political parties.

    Our electoral process and our media outlets have divided the population along partisan lines; those who don’t fit within the lines get left out. IVP San Diego Chapter Program aims to create a space for otherwise disenfranchised voters to participate in meaningful dialogue and work towards nonpartisan solutions.

    Our Mission: 

    IVP San Diego Chapter Program aims to provide students with the resources they need to spread awareness of nonpartisan voter rights and build a political infrastructure for nonpartisan, independent-minded discussions.

    How: 

    IVP San Diego Chapter Program begins with the fundamentals of advocacy through an annual Leadership in Action: People Over Parties training program. Upon completion of the program, students will be equipped with new media campaigning skills. These skills are to be used to establish groups on school campuses in San Diego; for example, IVP Campus: CSU San Marcos.

    All IVP Campus groups will work to educate community members about IVP’s mission statement. Putting into practice newly learned Advocacy to Action campaign techniques, students will ask community members to support IVP’s cause by either signing a petition or becoming a fellow member. Each IVP Chapter Program will then have the freedom to address issues relevant to their schools and their communities, so long as they abide by IVP’s principles and promote The Etiquette.
