Call your PA House of Representatives legislator and candidates running for statewide office:

“I would consider voting for you on the primary but I cant, because I am an independent.  Please support  SB 300 and HB 192 to open PA's primaries to non affiliated voters”.

Write a letter...

...to the editor to your local newspaper highlighting how the primaries in PA bar independent from voting, even though the primaries are publicly funded and are the important first round of voting to decide who will represent all of us.

Sample Letter:

 

The pandemic has forced us to re-evaluate many facets of life.  This is an opportunity for us to redesign our systems where there is more freedom, choice, inclusion and safety for all.

Voters have been confronted with what it means to have their ability to vote threatened.  This is felt by independent voters every election season.  I am one of nearly 900,000 independent voters in PA who are barred from voting in the primary, even though the primaries are publicly funded and are most crucial first round of elections that decide who will represent all of us.

As we address this current crisis and ask how we can make voting this election season accessible, safe and accurate, we must also ask “What about those of us who can’t vote at all?”  Join us in the fight for open primaries www.paindependent.org.
