To reform our election process, we have to first understand how it works. Independent Voter Project has simplified and summarize complex legal principals, important facts, and alternative options, so we can improve elections, together.

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.

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.
