Ask your Congressional candidates to endorse Independent America's electoral reform platform - SendMeRSS

Independent America Political Action Committee has a 10-point electoral reform platform. The planks are:

Uniform Ballot Access
Loosen Third Party Ballot Restrictions
Universal Voter Registration
Election Day Holiday
Equal Media Access/Debate Inclusion
Instant Runoff Voting (IRV)
Secure Voting Machines
Public Campaign Financing
Direct Popular Vote Election of the President
DC Congressional Representation

These are all well-known among party activists, especially those supporting third party and independent candidates. And each plank has a long history of struggle with the powers-that-be in the state and national legislatures.

Independent America asks all to contact their congressional candidates for U.S. Representative and U.S. Senator for this election year and ask them to endorse this reform platform. It will strengthen our democratic system and make it more fair and equitable for all candidates, and, ultimately, for the American voter.
