Petitions! Bastrop Recall & Reasonable Petition Requirements

Bastrop Alert — Don’t Sludge Us Austin!

Do you vote halfheartedly, or not at all, because you don’t want to encourage them?

Then you must be an Independent Texan!

Seriously folks, we at Independent Texans, believe the most urgent problem of our generation is the drop in voter participation, the rise in political corruption in both parties, and the erosion of American democracy itself.

42% of Americans are self-identified independent voters. That’s about 5 million Texans! But we remain unorganized as a political force with which to be reckoned.

Join the independent movement across the Lone Star State to clean up, open up and take back Texas– of, by and for ALL the people of Texas!

Independents also finally have our own non-profit membership organization. Regardless of your party affiliation or lack thereof, please join the League of Independent Voters of Texas.
