Open the Presidential Primaries Nationwide

This petition had 25,280 supporters


26,000,000 registered voters were barred from participating in the Presidential Primary this year. That's almost a third of voters in states with closed primaries. It is clear our primary election system needs wholesale reform.

We have a rare opportunity to make a revolutionary change RIGHT NOW. During each of the conventions in July, the Party Chairs relinquish their power to the thousands of delegates selected in the primaries. Those delegates, many of them regular folks like us, have the power to change the rules for all future Presidential Primaries. And, over the last 100 years, they have done so multiple times.
