Better Choices, Better Results,
Our election system is fundamentally unfair
Independent/unaffiliated voters and candidates face massive participation barriers.
All taxpayers contribute to funding partisan elections but Independent/unaffiliated voters must take an extra step to participate.
Independent/unaffiliated voters are required to compromise their principle of non-affiliation and must select a party ballot to participate in the primary election.
Independent/unaffiliated candidates must collect up to 6 times the number of signatures compared to partisan candidates.
Independent/unaffiliated candidates do not appear on the primary ballot.
By the numbers
Why we're here
Independent and unaffiliated voters are now the largest registered voter bloc in Arizona, totaling 35% of the electorate at 1.45 million.
100% of primary decisions are made by
< 20% of voters in the Republican primary and < 15% of voters in the Democratic primary.
Independent and unaffiliated candidates must collect up to 6 times the number of signatures compared to partisan candidates.
Primary election overhaul in Arizona could benefit independent voters.
