Our Focus

Meaningful Election Reform

IVP is most well-known for authoring California's successful nonpartisan primary reform. Lasting election reform requires a practical approach. Independent Voter Project analyzes the legal, political, and social barriers to success, to focus on reforms that move us forward.

A Presidential Primary for Everyone

It’s simple. Taxpayers fund them. Public officials run them. So every voter should be able to vote in them.

In California, we’re standing up for 5.8 million independent voters being denied their right to vote in the 2020 presidential election.

The Existence

Pundits ignore us. Primaries exclude us. Political scientists say we are just “closet partisans.”


The Existence is a monthly giving program that allows us to challenge the partisan establishment, make lasting election reform possible, and tell the political class: you can’t ignore us any longer.
