For Removing the Straight Party Lever

The straight party lever is broken. The 19th century anachronism that allows voters to cast votes for all candidates of a single party is incompatible with our current optical scan machines. When voters pull the straight party lever in 16 cities and towns, they are not voting for some local races. This is a flaw in the ballot, and the only solution is to eliminate the straight party lever.

The Providence Journal has recently endorsed our position, and 16 cities and towns have already supported removing the lever. Join the movement today. Contact your legislators, and ask them to support removing the straight party lever.
