The National Association of Nonpartisan Reformers (NANR) is a member-led Association dedicated to structural election reforms in the public interest. We provide support to our member organizations through shared resources, best practices, and regular convenings.

What unites us is being pro-voter, not anti-party. We favor a robust competition of numerous political parties and independents, and a level playing field on which that can occur.

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 reform nationally, in states and in your community.

The second annual NANR summit took place in Denver, Colorado, where the Association is based. We hosted the event at a historic hotel, The Oxford, where more than 150 participants enjoyed a whiskey happy hour each evening, and were able to walk to the train station and experience downtown Denver. 

The summit provided the opportunity for organizations, teams, and reform leaders across the nation to meet, coordinate, and collaborate. The workshops and networking helped attending nonpartisan reform organizations, causes and campaigns become stronger and more effective.
