Texas Independents to Decide Tight Races
Bastrop, Texas, 11:00 am: Independents are now the largest portion of the electorate, according to a 2018 Gallup Poll. These voters could become the "change" that many challengers claim to be. Today, the non-partisan, non-profit League of Independent Voters of Texas (LIV) released "How to Organize Texas Independents", a guide for candidates running in November. They urge candidates regardless of party affiliation, to help unify voters to avert an economic and political crisis.
LIV Board Member and author of "Uncle Sam's Checkbook", a quick-study guide to federal budget," Jeff Harper, said,
Mark Miller, who won renewed ballot status for the LIbertarian Party by receiving enough votes for Railroad Commission in 2016, recently joined the Advisory Board of LIV. Miller said,
LIV focuses on political reforms, such as fair ballot access, independent citizens redistricting, protection of groundwater and ending eminent domain abuse. Since 2013, LIV has advocated for uniting rural, suburban and municipal voters to join with independent, non-aligned voters. LIV has urged voters to "step back from the party machines" to find a common purpose -- bringing solutions to the table rather than tolerating continued discord.
