THE INDEPENDENCE PARTY OF NEW YORK STATE
Intelligent, Ethical, & Balanced Leadership
In the middle of the height of the COVID pandemic, Albany lawmakers passed a law passed a law to make it more difficult for minor parties in New York State to maintain ballot status. On Election Day 2020, the Independence Party, along with other minor parties, including the Libertarian and Green parties, failed to meet this new higher threshold. There is pending litigation that may affect this status. In the meantime, we will continue to fight for the rights of minor political parties in New York and throughout the nation.
The Independence Party is comprised of individuals from across the political spectrum. We support candidates committed to good government practices grounded in data-driven policy and common sense.
Message from Chairman Frank MacKay
We stand for honest dialogue with the American People and an end to empty political posturing and rhetoric that has long been fortified by the media, in collusion with the nation’s two-party system.

The Independence Party is a grassroots organization working to create a THIRD MAJOR PARTY in America. The Independence Party of New York and other independent political organizations are working together towards this goal.
