Better Choices, Better Results,
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.
Our election system is fundamentally unfair
Independent/unaffiliated voters and candidates face massive participation barriers.
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.
Campaign launches to revamp Arizona primary system, eliminate partisan ballots
New voter initiative to scrap partisan primaries in Arizona? Heck, yeah
