Since 2008, Randy Miller (the Founder and President of ULIV.org) has waged a war on those who seek to fortify their positions of power at the cost of democracy. Over time, others have joined the cause. Will you?

 

Our Mission

We strive to help enact structural change to our political process in meaningful ways, like top-2 open primaries, that will enable more citizens to participate. We believe that if political parties wish to have a closed primary, they should fund it themselves. No public funds. We also support initiatives that level the playing field for those who wish to become (or continue to be) elected leaders.

Resisting oppression and injustice is what makes us Americans. If we are unhappy with the direction our communities and country are heading, we must do more than just complain. We must fight the apathetic urge to do what is easy and allow someone else to "take care of it". Change starts when one person decides to fight for what is right. Someone sees or reads about that one person and wants to do more. And then another. And then another. It starts with you.

If you support our mission, join us. We are always looking for volunteers and new ideas. Also, please consider donating to the independent voter cause via the yellow donate buttons found on the top and bottom of the web page. Funds are used for organizing efforts including outreach, protests, freeway blogging, and whatever else we think up next to share our message. Thank you for your generosity!

Political group shift has created an environment where party leaders and elected officials must become ever more extreme to prove their dedication to their cause. Of course, I feel alienated as many other citizens do. Becoming an independent voter was the sanest thing I felt I could do in an insane world.
— P.J. Steiner, VP ULIV.org
