Our mission is to promote a vibrant and dynamic democracy – the U.S. is one of the only democracies in the world with a duopoly, and it’s clearly not working. The most straightforward way to include more perspectives is Ranked-Choice Voting, which keeps any party from being described as a ‘spoiler’ because voters can state their preferences for a third-party candidate while still helping a preferred major party candidate defeat an opponent. At the end of the day, your vote is yours – no party has a right to it.

Also, due to the current electoral process, in the vast majority of races the Forward Party will be involved in, the candidate is likely to be running as a member of one of the major parties.
