NANR is the first association of national nonpartisan reform leaders

Truly nonpartisan reform is difficult. Our members have passed major reforms like Colorado’s more open primary, Maine’s statewide ranked choice voting initiative, and California’s top-two nonpartisan primary system. 

Being a NANR member gives you access to this trusted network of experienced partners, advisors, vendors, and other resources to make sure you have all the tools to advance nonpartisan reform.

NANR was founded by representatives from ten organizations that have led significant successful efforts in the face of two-party opposition to change electoral rules to expand voters’ meaningful choices by increasing electoral competition outside of and/or within both major-party establishments.

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.
