Pledge your name
It’s time to reclaim the vice presidency. The Constitution gives the American people the right to choose the vice president. That right was taken from the people by the party ballot, weakening the office and the democratic principles we stand for. Why is this important now? Because the vice presidency is uniquely suited to negotiate complex issues in an era of partisanship and divided government. Only the vice president has a formal role in the executive and legislative branches. Only the vice president has the power to pull the parties together with the tie-breaking vote in the Senate. By signing this pledge, I call on my state to create a separate ballot line for the vice presidency in 2020.It’s time for us to elect the VP.
Join our movement to reclaim the vice presidency.
