THE INDEPENDENCE PARTY OF NEW YORK STATE
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.
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.
