Open our Primary Elections to Independents in Pennsylvania

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

We have been gathering signatures to present to state legislators with the end goal of getting support for a bill to open our primaries. This is an on-going effort. The greater number of signatures on this survey will impress upon members of the legislature that this issue is a serious matter for Pennsylvania voters. Please send this to all of your fellow independent-minded friends!

In Pennsylvania, independents can’t vote in the primaries.

  • Over 1,000,000 Pennsylvanians are registered as independent/unaffiliated voters--and our numbers are increasing.
  • Polls show independents making up over 40% of the electorate nationwide.
  • Closed primaries disenfranchise Pennsylvanians.

Independents pay taxes that pay for the primaries, and cannot participate. This is a crucial round of voting that often determines who will be in office. We are one of 13 states that lock out independents...and that's not democratic!

Show your support for open primaries in PA and sign this petition! PA residents only, please.
