Today, politics seem to be incredibly divided, which often makes it difficult for parties to get together to discuss policies and come to an agreement. The primary goal of the Independent Voter Project is to bring together elected officials, top experts and industry leaders to talk about policies in a bipartisan environment and make important decisions that will mold the future of this country and improve the way it runs. Taking these discussions away from Washington, D.C., ensures everyone is on a level playing field and encourages discussion until a suitable conclusion can be reached.
What Is Their Function?
The Independent Voter Project was created in 2006 due to the tendency for the political arena to be largely biased one way or the other. Over time, they have paid close attention to how elections in California were held and what the results were. Over time, based on their observations, they were able to develop a legal strategy that would challenge the closed partisan primaries that were often used and replacing them with these bipartisan discussions that would help develop better policies that will help more people than ever before.
Conferences and Summits
To help promote their efforts for a bipartisan method of working out policies, the Independent Voter Project holds a number of conferences and summits that bring individuals together to discuss new policies in a more neutral environment. Some of these events include a non-partisan primary summit that featured a number of discussion panels, summits on privacy and hydraulic fracturing, the Yountville Energy Conference and much more. They are also supporters of Follow My Vote, an organization that encourages new policies that provide transparency and security in the voting process so more people feel comfortable voting in important elections to help mold policy to reflect what more of the people actually want.
The Independent Voter Project is dedicated to changing the way politics in the United States works to make more people comfortable with the voting process. They have spent the last nine years looking at the way things are currently working and strategizing new ways to talk about new policies on neutral grounds. They recognize the wide gaps in the typical partisan discussions that take place and want to make changes that will make life better for everyone. When politicians learn to work together and make stronger decisions backed by a larger percentage of the population, this country will become a better place.
