Who We Are

The National Association of Nonpartisan Reformers is a collection of individuals and organizations dedicated to fostering a government that is representative of and responsive to the people, and to advancing reforms and causes that increase competition, participation, and accountability in our political system.

We recognize that the remedy to our unrepresentative and unresponsive government is to credibly challenge the institutionalized advantages that transfer control of the electoral process from the people to the leadership of the Democratic and Republican parties, and we resolve to mount that challenge.

In our common pursuit of this right and essential objective, we have established an association of nonpartisan, reform-oriented organizations and individuals that can facilitate shared resources, establish common objectives, and promote general efforts to provide more choice to voters and better representation to every citizen of the United States regardless of their party affiliation or non-affiliation.

The National Association of Nonpartisan Reformers Preamble

We, as individuals and/or representatives of organizations, in order to foster a government that is representative of and responsive to the people, are dedicated to advancing reforms and causes that increase competition, participation, and accountability in our political system. The Democratic and Republican parties have created institutional barriers to insulate themselves from these reforms.

The absence of a competitive political system denies voters fair and equitable access to their government. Such absence of access further denies candidates for elected office any reasonable capacity to freely express their opinions, offer such opinions for consideration of the electorate, or otherwise impact the course of public policy.

Further, the destruction of electoral competition diminishes the role of innovation in our political discourse, including within the Republican and Democratic parties, replacing the historic focus on new ideas in the American public square with the specter of the two parties’ prevailing views.

We further recognize that the remedy to our unrepresentative and unresponsive government is to credibly challenge the institutionalized advantages that transfer control of the electoral process from the people to the leadership of the Democratic and Republican parties, and we resolve to mount that challenge.

In our common pursuit of this right and essential objective, we support the establishment of a formal Association of nonpartisan, reform-oriented organizations and individuals that can facilitate shared resources, establish common objectives, and promote general efforts to provide more choice to voters and better representation to every citizen of the United States regardless of their party affiliation or non-affiliation.
