In the middle of the height of the COVID pandemic, the Governor of New York and the Democratic Party State Chair led a charge to make it much more difficult for minor parties in New York State to maintain ballot status. We will continue to fight for the rights of minor political parties in New York and throughout the nation, and hope that New Yorkers understand they DO have the right to register in the Independence Party or any other alternative to the two-party duopoly. Learn more about running for office as an independent candidate with an Independence Party designation.  You can also learn a little about how Governor Cuomo and the Democratic Party State Chair attempted to marginalize 'minor' political parties in 2020 to consolidate their own power.   

Our Vision

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.

Get Involved and Vote

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. 


Building a Resilient and Sustainable Future for ALL Americans

Through Public Policy Firmly Grounded in Research, Data, and Responsible Capitalism

The Independence Party's 2020 presidential ticket was reflective of the multi-generational and multi-racial activism of our times.  

Brock Pierce campaigned on a vision to change the metrics by which we measure our success as a nation: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.  "It's time to secure the rights to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all Americans."  

In brief, we need to find a way to ensure that people's basic needs can be met while also maintaining our values of liberty, and the ability of large and small businesses to thrive. Economic prosperity is at the heart of the Independence Party's values, but there must be a commensurate value placed on improving equity across all domains of American life.

The Independence Party also has a problem with politicians that spew falsehoods in order to gain votes and confuse our citizens. We're about honesty with the American people, and we believe that great ideas and policy can come from rational people that hold differing political views.
